Wishing You Sunshine

Happy Friday friend!  Today I have a fun little card taking on Nicole's button challenge.  I. LOVE. BUTTONS.  LOVE.  I am constantly inspired by Maile's use of buttons, that girl is gooood.  I certainly don't use them often enough on my projects.  Again...I took on my no patterned paper challenge, and created this for my lovely pregnant sister.  She isn't feeling the greatest this 1st trimester so off in the mail to her it goes!

Stamped my clouds in Tumbled glass Distress ink and then rolled the edges onto Broken China, masked those off and stamped my sun. 

I created my grassy hills with more distress ink and stamped my sentiment onto white cardstock, cut it out and popped it up with foam.  Added a twined button, and a flower button.

Sorted through some Hawaiian Shores buttons and picked out the small ones to create my rain drops.  Attached them with glue dots, and tada!

A card that will surely put a smile on Kim's face!  Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
