Rain Rain


I have a SSC Card challenge card for you today...all you have to do is make a card using four colors from THIS graphic (designed by yours truly) and add a twist, Spring. Easy!

This was inspired by THIS piece of art for Etsy Inspired (I thought it was raining, thus the umbrella) and by the 2S4Y sketch
I took the image from Cosmo Crickets "paper" and copied it using the printer so I could trace and cut out the extra umbrella. Then I distressed the edges and slightly inked them, and added the second umbrella. A button and a smidge of ribbon were added to tie everything off.
I don't know why my camera is coming out with these fuzzy pictures - I'm on Macro, Close-Up setting. I'm going to try something different with my next card, and I'll need you to let me know what you think.
 Anyways, I just wanted to share something; sometimes my cards will slide when I put them on the glassy-looking bottom of the photo (a laminating sheet, actually), and to keep propped right, I have this bunch to help me...

 They are actually the smallest thing in site to use when taking my pictures, so I just use them. ;)

Thanks for stopping in!
