Fluttering over the Rainbow to say Hello

Pinterest Insipred...here is a colorful card for the Rainbow Challenge my dear friend Cassandra has going on over at MyCreativeTime this week. I love the look of rainbow colors. Always makes me smile. This card looks way more complicated than it is! First I gathered some scraps of cardstock in a rainbow of colors. I used my original Cricut Cartridge George (that is over 7 years old and never gave me wonky circles!!) and cut squares at 1 1/2" and circles at 1". I just didn't feel like punching them all and this went super fast!! After I adhered the squared onto white cardstock, I embossed the whole thing. The circles cut in white lent a nice break up to the colors and I mounted the finished piece onto some black cardstock. The butterflies were cut from the same array of colored cardstock using MyCreativeTime Chunky Jar Accessories. The Hello Sentiment and the little label are also from the same set!! I thought less is more on this one as I tried adding twine, buttons, ribbon or bling and it all seemed too much. It felt so good to create!! My treat to myself after weeding a whole flower bed! Yuck I hate weeding.
