Rainy Days

This card has been made with the sketch from Hanna & Friends in mind.  I hope you like my interpretation as this is not my normal style of card!

I'd like to thank Patsi (from Bling It On...) for reminding me who makes this stamp which is from the Papermania Nostalgia collection and is called "Rainy Day" and has been coloured with Promarkers.

The squares have been embossed with the Cuttlebug "Divine Swirls" embossing folder and edged with Tim Holtz distress ink "Black Soot"   A couple of swirls have been highlighted and finished off with a pearl in the corners.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been edged with Promarkers to add that touch of colour. A bow has been added from my stash.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

Hanna & Friends - sketch
Ai Factory - water projects - TOP 3
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - colour combo
Play Date Cafe - colour splash
Fussy & Fancy - embossing
Stamp Man - curls and swirls
