Amy R's Friday Sketch #53- Rain, Rain, Go Away

Hey there stampin and crafting friends!

Hope everyone had a good weekend. It was a rainy mess here in central VA. Lots of napping in my house :) I did get a couple of cards made but only because I had the images colored earlier in the week. I was lucky to get my new CC Designs stamps in this week! Also go the new Magnolia Easter Collection stamps and my fortune collection stamps (these were straight from Sweden!). I didn't use my new magnolias yet but I did get to play around some with my new CC designs.

Well, without delay, here is my Friday Sketch submission. Amy decided to rock it old skool and revamp her very first sketch! Circles.. i love circles!!

Supplies: Stamps- CC Designs' Gingersnaps Spring Fling; Ink- Palette Noir; DP- Magnolia by MME; CS- SU Whisper White and Pacific Point; Coloring Medium- Copics; Other- border punch, coluzzle, baja breeze stitched grosgrain ribbon.

I accidently ordered the wrong size ribbon but I think it fit perfectly with this card! The paper from MME is gorgeous and the SU in colors matched perfectly! I cut the flowers out of the DP to accent the card. And of course the image.. isn't she gorgeous!? Hubby recommended I color the rain gear traditional red, yellow or orange. I chose to use buttercup and light orange to keep it more subtle. Loved this sketch.. and the border punch is wavy like water so perfect with the rain idea! I'll be back in a bit with the ATS DT Challenge- to use green!
