Enjoy Life's Simple Joys - Walk in the Rain!

One of the things I love about being on the Craft Us Crazy Challenge Design Team is that I have the opportunity to use some pretty awesome digi stamps provided by the challenge sponsors.

This month Stamp Fairy is the monthly sponsor, and the owner let the design team choose a digital image to use. YAY!!! Shopping is such fun! THANK YOU, Stamp Fairy!!!

I selected the Patsy April Showers image and here is what I created:

Isn't she darling? I love the way she is stomping in the rain puddle!

I used two different sentiment rubber stamps that I have - one inside and one on the front of the card. I also added lots of sparkle and layers of papers.

I love the look of the splashy paper.

Can you tell I like rhinestones?

The rhinestones in the lower right corner are supposed to look like droplets of rain water, splashing as Patsy stomps in the puddle.

Be sure to check out Stamp Fairy... there are lots and lots of fun images!

And don't forget to play along in the Craft Us Crazy Challenge!

Jeanette, this is the cutest little girl ever! Reminds me of a day my dd was playing in the first snow/rain. The vellum paper is perfect over the raindrop dp on the inside. And I do like the splash of rhinestones!!!

Awwwww, this reminds me of home :) Another fantastic and creative layout!! I love all those blues and greens! I also love how you've stamped the inside sentiment on vellum so we can see the paper beneath. Very clever!! HUGS
