Laurel Burch Rainbow Cats

 There was a news article on TV today about all the rainbows that appeared on the day of the death of Queen Elizabeth and on the subsequent days.  The article also indicated that members of the Royal Family were attributing them as signs from the late Queen.  I chose to color the cats in rainbow colors and use some rainbow bling on my altered playing cards.  I also added a bit of Diamond Stickles.  I am entering this in the Simon Says Monday Blog Challenge.  The challenge this week is a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II and is titled Sparkle and Shine:
