Sorry you're leaving us!

One of my very Good Friends who is also a bit of a Craft addict and works in the same team as me left to go and study at Reading University as a mature Student at the end of last week. We went out for lunch to say Goodbye yesterday and I made her this card for us to sign.

Helene is going to study Meteorology so I wanted to make a Weather themed card for her.
I decided on a Rainbow and clouds and tried to find suitable embellishments, I couldn't so I decided to make one with my Nestabilities and Cuttlebug. I cut three concentric circles in red yello and green card and stuck them together. I then cut a round frame from blue card by using 2 Nesties one inside each other.
I stuck that on the other 3 and cut the whole thing in half through the diameter of the circle and then trimmed out the arch with some small scissors.
I cut 2 clouds from felt with oval scallop nesties and then mounted them with foam pads under the rainbow to make the topper.
A bit of bling, some Sizzix letters and a stamped Elzybells greeting complete the card.
It actually turned out better than I'd imagined and I have another ready made rainbow to use for another project!
Hope you are having a good day and are keeping out of the rain. It is rather grim here!
