Playing with Buttons

There is STILL time (8 more days!) to enter Virginia's View challenge #3 (details here and over Lily Pad ). I made another card based on the inspiration photo. Buttons in rainbow order are just.too. fun.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
The best part of making this card is placing the buttons, gem and pearls!
Supplies: Hero Arts Layering paper (punch),  Bold Pop Designs,  sentiment from Type , Newspaper Background
I looked through my pile of buttons and dig for the RIGHT ones. It was absolutely relaxing! I am entering this to the March Gallery Challenge over Paper Crafts (see here) . Rainbow-colored themed cards just makes me happy! Hope this card does that to you!
