Singing in the Rain

I made this card to enter into this weeks Less is More challenge, however, when it was finished I decided that it really wasn't very Less is More so I made another one for the challenge using the same image but much more simple.


I have used an adorable image from Joanna Sheen's Little Suzy's Zoo Singing in the Rain stamp set and a snippet of Pink Petticoat gingham paper.


I coloured my image with ProMarkers and used distress inks to create the cloudy sky.  I cut my image out with a Spellbinders circle die, I then layered it onto a scalloped circle die cut from some co-ordinating yellow card stock.  The gems have been coloured to match and the ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

RRR Challenge 99 - Things with Wings and Ribbon
The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Die Cuts and/or Punches
Melonheadz Friends Challenge - Things with Wings or Tails
Try It On Tuesday Challenge - Things With Wings
Crafty Ribbons Challenge 99 - Anything Goes with Ribbon
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 331 - For the Birds!

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.

I know I shouldn't complain about good weather, but +30 degrees in Oslo is almost unbearable, I'd love some rain now. It's a cute image and your coloring is so beautiful.
