It's Raining, It's Pouring!

I think we may have to build an ark soon. We have had 5 inches of rain since Friday. On top of the rain, there were 70 mph gusts of wind. I can see the tulips and daffodils growing inch by inch right in front of me. There are sprouts of green everywhere! This is so much better than dirty old snow. Spring brings the rain and lots of it!

My card was created for the shear pleasure of it and then I saw how very many challenges this fit into. I will be entering this into 3 challenges:

Daring Cardmakers - Daffodils

I am new to each of these challenges and I am thrilled to participate.

Here are the details of my card. My dp used is from Debbie Mumm's, Noah's Ark collection. I found these beautiful vellum daffodils from Jolee's that I have been hording forever. My stamped image is from Lindy's Stamp Gang. The set is called The Rain Lovers Gang. I colored the image with Copics and OMS w/pencils. My sponging is with So Saffron ink from SU. It was cut with a Labels four Nestabilities die. I added clear Dewdrops and Crystal Effects for a little sparkle and wetness.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in and take a peek.
