After having to wait 2 extra days for delievery *shakes fist at Amazon* yesterday, was my first real day to play with my new Silhouette Cameo and I love it! I can't wait to figure out all the fun things I can do with it, but for my first card with it, I stuck to something simple.

I cut the flags and bird with files from the Silhouette store, matting a tall, thin card, with purple, to round out my rainbow colours. The sentiment is also cut with my cameo, using the Impact font. I decided to forgo any embellishments (although I did spend twenty minutes, considering gems... before deciding against it. I find it very hard not to use gems, lol!)

I'm submitting this card for:
- Creative Cutting Challenge #38 - Anything Goes
- Cute Card Thursday #337 - Rainbows
- Dream Valley Challenges #90 - No Stamps Allowed
