Rain or Shine

Good morning friends! Today starts a new challenge over at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog...and I'm the hostess.

House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #213 - Rain or Shine
I can't wait to see what YOU come up with for my theme. Get creative as you want with your House-Mouse & Friends images. Click HERE for challenge details, rules and prize info.

I had the perfect stamp for this challenge theme.

This stamp pretty much takes up the entire front of an A2 card. To get it layered, I did trim it down just a tad. You all know how much I love glitter and bling, so I added glossy accents to the raindrops and sprinkled crystal glitter on top. It's soooo sparkly!

The sentiment is from Great Impressions. It worked out perfectly with this stamp for the challenge. I colored everything (even the little wooden hearts) with my Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils.

Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils:
  • Flowers, Leaves, Stems - 014, 056, 058, 023, 026, 118
  • Mailbox Wood Post - 094, 108

  • Skin - 005, 009, 008
  • Fur - 087, 088, 094, 103, 108, 110
  • Sky - 074
  • Wood Hearts - 023, 026

I just love this gorgeous card! Your coloring is so beautiful and that sweet sentiment reminds me of the coloring book pages that are all the rage. Love the typeography. Those little wooden embellishments really send it over the top with cuteness.

Hope you have a great day and an even better week!
