Life isn't about...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Oh well back to work for me today!
I sure had a lovely week off!

I think in this country we have had our fair share of rain and a lot of my friends lost their homes due to the rivers breaking their banks and flooding their homes.
I hope that you are all okay and life is gradually getting back to some normality.

My card today is all about the rain!

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 dark green square scalloped card.
2. The first layer is black card.
3. The topper has been created by first using shaving foam and Aqua Tints. I then stamped the rain drops which are Ryn stamps.  I then stamped the sentiment and image which are inkylicious stamps.
4. To finish off I added green pearl gems to the 4 corners.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create #166 - Anything Goes
Come and Get It #108 - Favourite Technique (shaving foam and inks)
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #29 - Anything Goes
The Paper Players #285 - Rain or Shine
Creative Fingers #104 - Anything Goes

Many thanks for visiting today!
