Here comes the rain!

Well, they have been calling for thunderstorms here for the past couple of days and we were lucky that it passed South of us but not today! It is raining cats and dogs at the moment and intelligent person that I am, I am posting on my computer during a storm. What can I say, I like to live on the wild side...NOT! My card today is using one of the previous stamps from lotv. I cannot wait until Tuesday, my greedy little fingers will be poised and ready to go and order me some of those cuties!

I used some colored pencil to deepen the shadows a bit and really like the effect, need to do it more often. A pin with some pearls and a bead on it and some filigree corners and she is all ready to go.
There is a little bit of sparkle underneath all of the letters on the saying also but it isn't showing in the picture. That is because when I stamped the sentiment it smeared a smidgen so I just went beneath each letter with a gel glitter pen and voila! instant showcasing of the sentiment. When life gives you lemons right? I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Oh my friend this is just adorable! I love, love how you have colored this. Your papers rock and I love the flowers with it. I am laughing at you as when we had our little thunder storm the other day and our lights flicked I am such a C.H.I.C.K.E.N. boy did I shut down my computer right away. Were did you get your stamp at? I love these. Hugs, Lisa
