Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World

Day 9 of this week's 365 Cards Challenge is to "Do That Decade." The decade that we were to draw inspiration from was the 90's. Well, let's see, in the 90's, I got married, bought a house, worked on my career, turned ??? A lot went on in the 90's....collectively we prepared for Y2K, we lived the first Gulf War and we watched Seinfeld on TV. Then there was Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. IZ as he was know, was a Hawaiian performer. In 1993 he released a beautiful rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow and What a Wonderful World." If you have never heard it, take a few minutes to listen to it on You Tube. It is easy to find.

It is from this song, that I draw my inspiration for the card.

If you look closely, all 7 colors of the Rainbow are somewhere on the card...remember Roy G. Biv? 0:) The roses are for a portion of the lyrics from Wonderful World.

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole passed away in 1997 but his beautiful music will live on. For Now, Happy Crafting!
