Rainy Day Card

Have any of you had those rainy days that are a little bit rough?  I thought this would be a great card for those that have a tough day and need some cheering up.

I really love how this card turned out.  I used blue chalk and chalked up the edges of the clouds which gives them a fluffy/soft look.


 I also sewed lines from the clouds to my rain drops to make it look like they were falling.  You can really tell when you look up close but it is harder to tell from further away.


I really like this card.  Simple but detailed.

This is wonderful! I love how you accented the clouds with the blue ink, and the stitching from clouds to the raindrops is GENIUS. This one definately made me smile today! :)
