Rainbows & Butterflies Card

CD storage pockets are wonderful for making shaker style cards like this. The darker pink cardstock is the base. The blue sky paper is stamped with sentiment & butterfly rainbow from a stamp set I selected in a prize win recently & first time using and filled with plastic punched circles for rain/shaker are inside the CD storage pocket. The word 'memorex' in the lower right corner is covered up by the umbrella.
