Over The Rainbow!

It's a bonus post!!!!  We get an extra day of the year for leap day so I thought in honor of that I'd post an extra card!!!  I'm loving this card.  I was a little unsure about it while I was making it but once I saw the finished card I knew right away it was a keeper and that I loved it!!!  I saw a card similar to this on Pintrest, that inspired me.  It's very simple, but very pretty.  The buttons just pop off the card with that burst of color!  I used the cupcake punch for the clouds, I trimmed a couple of them so that they wouldn't all be the same size.  I sponged them, and the bottom layer lightly in Saraha Sand. 

For the buttons, I put a skinny piece of coordinating cardstock in each of them.  I thought about using bakers twine but in the end I decided that I didn't want white nor did I want bows or knots on them.  I love the look of the colored cardstock.  I used glue dots to stick them down.  I used my markers to color the greeting from Elementary Elegance.  This is a Sale a Bration set and oh by the way you can get the buttons FREE as your Sale a Bration choice too!!!!  So fun!!!!  One last thing if you're in the area of the Taylor Ranch Library tomorrow at 2pm make sure to stop by, I'll be teaching an intro to cardmaking there! 
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!
