Spring Showers

Good morning! I FINALLY have something crafty to share with you! But don't get too excited because tomorrow I will have MORE exciting news to share with you regarding Cortney! ;)
Today's card is an adorable stamp by Crafty Secrets called, Animal Party. 
I colored it in with Copics and chose colors that were very soft and pastel to match the designer paper. I added drops of glossy accents and a bit of glitter to emulate raindrops.  (Cuz I'm clever that way! Ha!) 
I can't seem to not add ribbon and string to my cards.  I think it has become an obsession....almost as bad as my glitter "problem."
So ribbon and string were added.....again. 
I added a vellum flower to the center with a yellow epoxy dot.  
 I am heading to a nature reserve today with my 5th graders. We will be hiking, scooping water and bugs from the pond, eating edible plants, and enjoying the sunshine and warmer weather! This is one of the many reasons I love being a teacher!
Check back tomorrow for my big news!

I absolutely love this, Michele! Your artistic eye always chooses the perfect accents for the image. I just love the vellum flower, the beautiful ribbon and string combo and the gently distressed edges on this sweet, sweet card.
