When It Rains Card

Happy Friday everyone! Todays post is a card I made for three different challenges. I had seen the idea in a old issue of my Paper Crafts magazine and I thought it would be just perfect. I made it for My Sheri Crafts challenge # 52 - use buttons, Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #2 - use umbrella, rain boots, flowers or rain drops and Squiglefly challenge #93 - use fabric/stitching.



Supplies used: cardstock - blue, white and black; patterned paper - Mabel "Little Lady" Fine Flowers from Stella & Rose by My Minds Eye; buttons - my stash; umbrella cut at 2 3/4" from Create A Critter Cricut cartridge; border punch - EK Success; font - Vaguely Repulsive; sewing machine.


Thanks for looking, your comments make my day!

Hi Esther! I love how you did the rain fall with the buttons and stitches! How creative! I saw you said Squigglefly didn't have any sentiments about rain, but I did find this one
