Rainbow Button Cards

Who Loves Rainbows?
I have always loved playing around with bright colours ... and what better way to do that than with a rainbow???  My 6 yr old niece noted recently that the last few cards I had given her were made from the same collection (... pretty pink cards embellished with purses, castles etc.) ... so I thought I'd try making something different that she might like!

Little Red Wagon posted a challenge to use clouds in a project and The Joyful Stamper has an "anything goes" challenge posted ... so I decided today was the right time to share the following cards!
I thought that the cloudy sky paper from the MME Lime Twist collection made for a great backdrop!

I love this white/sheer polka dotted ribbon from Bazzil --- I try to use it on as many things as I can :)

I used some really strong glue to hold down these buttons ... trust me, they are not falling off anytime soon!

And a rainbow shaped card ... I used my cuttle bug to emboss the clouds (that I free-handed) ... and used a border punch to create the layered grass effect.

Normally I ink almost everything in a pinecone colour ... but today I branched out and used a silver on these clouds ... rubbing a bit on the embossed part so that the pattern was more obvious!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Come again tomorrow :)
