Rainy Day Fun

     Another card for another of my favorite progressive challenges, this one at Scrapper's Delights.

     This time I colored the image with a combination of chalks and ProMarkers; the girl is colored with ProMarkers and the background and raindrops are done with chalk markers.  It's difficult to see but I added Glossy Accents to the rain puddle.

      I die cut the image and the pink frame with dies from Spellbinders.  The gray background paper is embossed with my 'Linen' folder.  I added sheer ribbon and tied a bow.

     The sentiment was part of the image set and I cut it with the smallest die from that set by Spellbinders.  Even then, the die was larger than what I wanted so I cut the sentiment, then adjusted the bottom of the die upward and cut it again, making the sentiment piece narrower from top to bottom.  The basic shape was still in line with the two larger cuts so it matches.
