Glittered Buttons

Hi there friends,
This week's Make it Monday by PTI is to create a project with glittered buttons. It's sooooo easy & fun! Now, ALL of my buttons are going to be glittered :) It's so hard to get a good pic of the glittered buttons, but they are so sparkly!
Here's my card:
 I used the hot air balloons from the set Everyday Button Bits with Spring Rain buttons. The fence is the woodgrain fence by MFT & the grass is a MS punch. I also used a previous MIM technique: Using dies to deboss. I debossed the cloud dies onto the cardstock.
Here's a closer peek:
That was another neat technique! I stamped the sentiment "Just soaring by to say hi" right above the fence in Spring rain ink, but it's hard to tell. (Me thinks it's time for the reinker :(   I did a bit of stitching along the edges- make mine faux, of course.
This is a pretty CAS card for me right!???  It's going to a friend I haven't talked to in a bit cuz we're both super busy, just to let her know I'm thinking of her &  to say "Hi."

I'll also be playing along in the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion: Challenge #51 Thinking of You
The Stamping Boutique: Stitching (faux)
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge: Use a die or punch
Hiding in my Craft Room: Glitter

That's all for now. Thanks for peeking today!
