When life gives you a rainy day.....

I was delighted to be invited to be a Guest Designer on the City Crafter Challenge blog.  It's a colour challenge this week, to use blue, green and a splash of red.  Here is the photo for inspiration.....

..... and here is my card.

To make the background, I used a Memory Box die - 'A Little Rain' three times on white card and attached blue paper behind.  The image is by Little Claire, 'Rainy Days'. It's stamped with a Memento ink pad and coloured using Promarkers.  I added Glossy Accents to the boots and puddles to make them stand out.  The image and sentiment are die cut using Memory Box Stitched Rectangles.  I actually made the bottom card first, using a paler green for the matting, but decided to make another card, changing the layout. 

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

Very pretty! Very sweet! Thanks for being our guest this week at CCCB!

Both cards are lovely, I think the layout of the first is more balanced though. I love that sentiment, I've not seen it before. It could make us all feel better about this miserable excuse for a summer that we're having!

Great card, Liz. Love how you interpreted the challenge photo. I agree with Jane, the sentiment is terrific. ta ta for now.

I prefer the top one too, Jane. I made the bottom one first, but wasn't sure about the layout, so made a second one and changed the position of the image and sentiment. xx

What a lovely little card. Wonderful sentiment and raindrops to go along with the gorgeous little image. You did a great take on the color scheme too.

Beautifully balanced design for this card. Love it.

Hope the Husband enjoys his semi-retirement (I read the post below) and that he doesn't interrupt your crafting too much!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

I love this card, the image is so sweet and the sentiment just perfect. I do like the raindrop die as well, and the glossy red boots.
