CCC- Rainy

I made it, late but I made it!!! Crazy week here once again. I did finally gather enought time to finish this card. I couldn't find my image from Some Odd Girl. (I did find it after hours of searching my computer files to see where I placed it. Funny thing is it was where it was suppose to be. Guess I should look first next time.) I ended up creating my own rainy day for this one. Love how it turned out so, maybe it was for the better this time. I used an image by Elizabeth Bell from Whiff of Joy Stamps. Colored her with water pencils. Cut image out, I did cut the flowers out of hand so looks like she is holding umbrella instead. Used chipped shapire distressing ink with course stiple sponge and swept across page to give look of rain. I cut partial circle with die and then border punched edge and dry embossed to add lines for umbrella. Puffed that up a bit and added glass effects in blues for rain drops and puddle. Then added "Hello Sunshine" sticker and pearl effects.

Jaime you made me LOL with your first sentence! I know how you feel about the rushing to get things completed. I am so in that boat. Can't wait till Spring Break. Ahaaa a little down time. Your card is off the hook beautiful girl! Love how you did the umbrella! Amazing! Also wanted to let you know that I have a chance to win a free digi image at my blog if you are interested. :-) Amy
