Simon Says Stamp - Repeat Stamping Rainbow Cards

June is PRIDE month and gives me the opportunity to bring two wonderful things together: rainbows and celebrating celebrating love.

Today's cards are fun and straightforward celebrations of color. The first focuses on creating a tropical leaf rainbow and the second repeats a beautiful sentiment to create a striking background that complements the rainbow of paper strips which create a focal point in its center.

Both of these cards for me started with focusing on the sentiments from the You Are Loved Stamp Set. Though they are versatile and can be used in many ways, they express support to love and let love. How beautiful is that?
