Rain rain go away!

It's the fourth Tuesday in May so it's my turn to post a card for you at Craft-Dee BowZ. I'm having so much fun having my own day to post a creation!  I find myself trying extra hard to make a card that will catch your attention and perhaps encourage you to join our challenge. The topic that the Design Team had this month was "spots and dots".  I LOVE the ribbon on my card that was one of the many items given to me to play with this month.  Thank you, Donna, for all the ribbons and goodies you send me monthly!

I used an image from MelonHeadz from the set Four Seasons and used my oval and scallop Spellbinders dies. The clouds are a die by My Favorite Things. I took out my Dotta-Riffic set by Zig and made my yellow and red polka dot paper. The sentiment is by Whimsy. Oh, the raindrops...those are actually self-adhesive clear jewels and I colored them with my Copic pens to give them that blue tone. They made perfect raindrops! The other items, the buttons and charm, are from my 'collection' of supplies.


 
I had lots of fun with this image and used Glossy Accents all over her hat, coat, eyeglasses, umbrella and water puddle. She's colored with Copics. 
 
 
And here's this fabulous polka dot ribbon that made an extraordinary bow. It's not wired yet it tied beautifully using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  I use my handy little bow tool for the bows on every card I make.
 
 
I hope you've looked at the Design Team's creations each week and have been inspired to pull out some ribbon, make a bow to add to your project, and enter our challenge! The month is nearly over and time is running out! It would be nice to read a comment from you, but I realize how busy we all get and how we fly through posts to see the pictures and get ideas from others. I hope, though, that you'll consider joining the challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ!

                                                                                Hugs,
                                                     Gail

  4. This is gorgeous, Gail! Love how you achieved such depth in your clouds! The raindrops look amazing, as does your bow! Beautiful colouring of the image and I like the sentiment! Sorry I haven't been visiting much. I've been having a flare-up of a chronic illness so I haven't been crafting or blogging as much this month. I've had to take a break from my DT for a while. Just wanted to let you know I'm still around but not as much. Have a great day!

  7. How cute is this and definitely bright and cheery, even with the stormy clouds and the rain dripping -- what a fantastic idea to make the clouds appear stormy and the gems fit perfectly. Her rain gear will definitely keep her dry, what with the glossy accents to allow the drops to run right off. Love the bright red colors of it all -- her raingear, as well as the background and lovely bow. The polka dot paper just adds a bit more pizzazz to this adorable card. Awe-inspiring, for sure, Gail !!!

  10. Darling image, Gail, and I love the sparkle you added to the clouds! If you get the rain to 'go away,' could you direct it to head for California? We need it. :-D Thanks so much for honoring us by playing in the "Cute with a Sentiment" challenge this fortnight at Aud Sentiments. Good luck and come play again in our next challenge.
