BBB23 - The Beauty of a Rainbow

Hello and happy Monday! I hope it is :)
It's the first Monday of the month, and it means we're kicking things off with a new Bring Back Beautiful challenge!
The theme for this month is The Beauty of a Rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue or Purple - combine all and you have the colors of the rainbow! For this challenge, show us how you can combine at least three of those hues to celebrate The Beauty of a Rainbow on your card or creation!



Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creation here! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB23. You have until June 30th to enter.
As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog.
Our FAVORITE entry this month will also be asked if they would like to join the team for the August Challenge.

I finally gave some love to the beautiful Magnolias! I don't know how it took me so long to ink up this stamp. It's quickly becoming one of my very favourites, the flowers are drawn with perfection and colouring is a pure joy.
Speaking of which, you can see on the photo below, the Copics that I used to colour the flowers. I'm not afraid of unusual matches and this one worked well! Although I admit that if you wanted to find a Magnolia flower in this saturated shade of yellow/rust, you'd have to search for very long... ;)
The leaves were treated to my favourites shades of green (YG99, YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91)



I used some My Mind's Eye Lost & Found - Breeze papers, and mounted the image over Labels Eighteen label, cut from kraft cardstock.



My layout inspiration, DS54...



Make sure you'll visit the rest of the Team's blogs, to see what beauties they are sharing today!
