Rainbow note

Just "a little note" using one of the free downloads from Nichole Heady today! I chose to use Melissa Bickford's cute little rainbow tag. I was drawn to those awesome polka dot clouds!

I love everything about the card except for the yellow base. I picked it to match the yellow in the rainbow, but I'm not sure it's right for the card. I'm thinking I should have gone with white or kraft. What do you think? Should I redo it?

I had a little "helper" today when I made this card. My three year old sorted buttons while I created. :)

I haven't decided who I'm rooting for in the Super Bowl tonight - do I root for the family favorite Packers, or do I cheer on the Steelers because their coach is from W&M?

I think the yellow background is perfect- it makes it such a cheery card, perfectly matching the sentiment. Great job!

I'm not a stamper, but I'm going to leave my 2 cents anyway. I like the yellow. I think it makes the card look kind of retro, like from our childhood. And that ties together nicely with the rainbow too. Reminds me of being a little girl. It definitely works!
