Hello Friends,

How r u doing ? It is very very hot here in Rajasthan. The temperature is rising. Waiting for monsoon to reach here. But before that magic of rains and rainbow arrive, we at Catchy Challenges decided to bring out some VIBGYOR colors in our cards. So today I am sharing a card made as DT inspiration for Catchy Challenges. The theme for June Challenge is to create a background using colors of rainbow but there is twist to it. You cannot create rainbows in your card. 
So here is my card. I have just used left over plain cardstocks to create my background.
