CAS-Friday Challenge: Happy Clouds & Rainbow

Hello everyone! I told you I'd be back soon! Hehe.
  
Joyce has kindly reminded me in a comment to my previous post that I should go look at the CAS-Friday Challenge! I had been holding it back due to exams and then I forgot about it (lol). So thanks Joyce for the reminder!
   
I thought I'd join in on the CAS-Friday Challenge fun a bit more now that I have more time for a bit. So this week's is all about going outside the box. Literally. You have to make a card where things stick outside the card base!
  
 
So here's a card I made for it. It's a happy card too!
  
The whole "go crazy with clouds" has been in my mind for a long time. I just never got around to it because when I received the die from PTI, it was defective :( So it took another month or a bit more before I could get my replacement (sucks living outside the US).
 
Initially I was going to make a baby card with the clouds, but today, I just thought, "Let's make a rainbow". Must be what my friends call the "post-exam glow" that's making me like this hehe
 
   
The rainbow was made using lots of Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles (standard and large) sets. And I did go a little crazy with the clouds and foam tapes. Haha. I just wanted to add some depths to them.
    
A close-up view to show you all the magic foam squares and tapes add to this card. And I finished it off with a little cute sentiment from Tiny Treats: Birthday set. I was hoping there was "up up and away" but I didn't see one (I thought there was...). 
    
Also, I chopped a centimetre off the bottom of the card base only at the front so I could have the clouds as the base when it's made to stand. I think I should do this more often!
   
 
Anyway, I think I'll stop rambling on. Thanks for coming over again!

This is fantastic! I love all those clouds, and what a clever rainbow. This is really such a happy card. And thanks for just saying I 'reminded' you. My daughters always call it 'nagging'! Congrats on finishing your exams.
