Storms will pass

Good Day

If there is one thing of Africa, then it's their thunderstorms. The smell of the first drops on the dust, after all the majestic thunder and lightning orchestra - is something you cannot explain to anybody, unless they have experienced it. Then the promise of the rainbow, that all storms will pass.
This rainbow digi is from Back to Paper and is the second of four digis of this round's progressive challenge over at CDAC. I got some inspiration by some of the glitter challenges and added some puff paint on the clouds. The sentiment I've found on Facebook. The border is my latest edition from Spellbinder and is called A2 Locking Loops.

Challenges I'm joining:
CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge - April - June
Feeling Sketchy #55 - Sketch

Daring Cardmakers - April Showers
Creative Corner Challenge #14 - I can see a rainbow
ABC Challenge #24 - Easy as 1-2-3 (1 Digi/Die-cut, 2 Ribbon, 3 Gems)

Thank you and hope the rain brings a wonderful spring!

Gorgeous combination of colours and pattern. Especially like that interlocking border done in the blue with the contrast of the yellow and red polka dot ribbon against it. Your rainbow is very pretty and sparkly. The little gem teardrops are a perfect finishing touch.
Thank you Olga for joining us at CDAC freebie challenge *Hugs*
