Just Us Girls Challenge #154

While I was catching up with commenting on blogs, guess what I found? MORE challenges! I simply could not pass up the Rainbow theme from Just Us Girls Challenge.
With the new twill ribbons (in 12 colors!!) that I bought from Archiver's, I decided to use them for the challenge....but how do I incorporate them into a card? 
With the lightly stamped swirls as a guide, I managed to glue 8 of them with Glossy Accent. It is actually quite easy to glue since Glossy Accent is such a GREAT adhesive. This is what I made....
hello beautiful
Not sure if this is beautiful, but it sure is UNIQUE! While I was uploading the photo.....

Dr. John: "Is this your card?". 
V: "Yeah, isn't it obvious?". 
Dr. John: " Well, it (pointing to the swirls) sure makes me dizzy...." (turning his head around and around) LOL
V: " Oh...look away! You just recovered from your vertigo!"

I think I will enter this card for the Focal Point challenge over Moxie Fab world. 
Cath will see my point :)

When I think of rainbows, I think of you! This is so fun, love how you did the swirls, they must have been tricky to get just right and glued down - I would have made a mess!

You always amaze me with your cleverness, Virginia! Loving how you used the stamped flourish as a template for the twine, that's thinking outside the box!
