I went kinda CAS with this card. First of all I cut out all my rainbow pieces with my Die-namics Rainbow die, then I assembled the rainbow and set it aside. Happily, I had all the colors of my rainbow in baker’s twine so I decided to wrap them around the top layer of my card front. I looked though my stash for a button with slits instead of holes through which to thread the baker’s twine but I didn’t have any white ones. What’s a girl to do? Why, she makes her own with Die-namics Button Quartet :)

To convert the holes to slits, I simply connected two holes on each side by cutting a portion out with my craft knife. Then I smoothed the edges with a emery board that I had cut in half lengthwise to get into small areas like this.

Here’s a close up of the sentiment and the twine threaded through the slits and wrapped around to the back.

And here’s a close up of the rainbow with clouds, using Die-namics Cloud Trio, popped up on foam dots. To finish the card off, some clear Dew Drops in the upper right corner add some balance.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.
