JUGS #24 All In A Flap!

Well, here we are again with another great JUGS challenge! I have to admit that this is my first time making a card like this. I love the way you can hook the flap under the image to keep it closed! Thanks for making me stretch my imagination, ladies!
My card base is lemon drop Pure Luxury card stock that has been partly embossed with the Cuttlebug, hounds tooth folder. I used a large scalloped circle, Nestabilities die to create the edge on my flap. My image is from Lindy's Stamp Gang. The set is called the Rain Lover's Gang. I masked the main image to add the extra puddles at the ducks feet, before I colored with Copics. The Copic colors used are: B00, B02, B21, C1, RV11, RV32, Y11, Y13, Y19, Y38,YG03, YR02, YR16. The puddles were edged with Crystal Effects to look wet. I added buttons with pearl centers as accents on my flap. My inside sentiment is "Just let a smile be you're umbrella".

The sun is shining and the temps are suppose to warm as the week progresses. Yippie!
