It Rained!

Finally! We got over three and a half inches or 8.8 cm of rain over 36 hours.  It is sunny now, however, and not too cold, with the occasional shower - and the bay is full of brown water from the run-off because the ground was so dry it couldn't soak in for a while, BUT we got enought to finally do some good and people on tanks got them full and much more. Almost no rain for one and a half months in winter is not fun.

I made this card for the following challenges:
Little Paper Shop - LPSC#80, a sketch challenge
Aud Sentiment Challenge #8 - use the word 'relax' in a card!



I sponged the edges with the ink, and pricked out the edging.  The word is added with letter sickers. Annabelle Stamps gave me a packet of Sprinkles and they just suited it, so they got added at the last moment. The image is coloured with Copics. I used the following to make it:

Card:  SU Mellow Moss
Stamp: Image - Thereshegoes: By the Sea; Sentiment - Inky Antics
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Other: ribbon, Annabelle Stamps Sprinkles; DP scraps; letter stickers Lettraset
