Rain Rain go away!!!!

Its been grey and rainy here for days now, so this card is quite appropriate (especially as i can't find a brolly any where in the house!!). I've used a fab free digi from CJ (Cowgirl Up Stamps) at Crafters Digital Art Centre to make this card which is for my friend who's been having a rough time. I hope it will cheer her up

The image is coloured with promarkers and I used clear EP to make a puddle and to add some raindrops to their umbrellas. The image is matted on to a layer of yellow card and a layer of red card that I stamped with a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper and embossed with white EP. I've followed this weeks sketch from Sketch and Stash and used a small scalloped decor plate (from Caroline's Rubber Stamps) for the scalloped circle and added some ribbon, flowers and buttons from my stash. I've used some yellow gingham paper for the background. The sentiment is from Elusive Images, stamped in Brilliance Rocket red on to an acrylic tag and embossed with clear EP. Its hard to see in the pic (I had to use the scanner as its so dark today) but it reads "Into every life a little rain must fall, Call me anytime you need an umbrella".

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - W is for Weather
Cooking it up with Katie: the recipe this week is "Use some green,add some embossing and inlcude a little ribbon"
Just Scraps - Play with the primary colours
My time to craft- Xtra special (this card is for a special friend)

I hope the rain stays away for you today and thanks for looking
