When it Rains

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Good Morning! My house needs some serious cleaning, so this is going to be short and sweet.

I've made another card for Flourishes Bring Back Beauty Challenge #14: The Beauty of Color. This one is blue--never my first choice, but since the Timeless Tuesday Challenge #134 is "Keep Calm and Play With Water," blue made sense. Can you see my glittery rain down by the sentiment?

The layout is Taylored Expressions Sketch #145 turned sideways.

I used Flourishes April Showers stamp set for the boots and sentiment on the front of the card, and also for the cloud and sun on the inside. Verve's Sunny Days set was perfect for the inside sentiment.

On the inside, I sponged just a little Wild Honey Distress Ink on the sun.

Now, where is that vacuum cleaner?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a Scrappy Day!
