Yay, Kites- "Quadruple-Shaker and Double-Slider" Card

The title sounds quite weird, right? Well, you shall now see what I mean by "quadruple shaker/double slider card... *drum roll*:  

Does it now make sense? Haha, I certainly hope so! So, when I initially set out to make this card, which is for a soon-to-be 10 year old girl, I was stumped and (sorely) lacking in inspiration/ideas/mojo etc,. But then I did my daily "rounds" of challenge blogs and I finally had my muse!!  For the color scheme, I actually drew inspiration from both the Sunday Stamps Challenge (where we must use a minimum of 3 colors from the challenge image above) and from Lawn Fawn's Lawnscaping Challenge  #134  in which we had to incorporate rainbow colors. That also happens to be the same theme for Virginia's View Challenge #22:

As I could not fit 7 kites within the space of the gorgeous Mama Elephant frame, I simply decided to cut 4 kite shapes and put two different colored sequins in each (except for the first). 

For a little twist and colors that I thought would be more appropriate for a girl, I decided to use somewhat non-traditional rainbow colors, using pink rather than red, for instance.

And finally, as I'm participating in Kathy Racoosin's awesome 30-Day Coloring Challenge, I opted to use little critters that I could color!
