April Mystery Image Card

Well we can finally post our mystery cards and of course I forgot....lol...seems to be the story of my life...fortunately I visited Tami and Barb's blogs and saw their adorable creations and remembered I made a card with the same image...(I probably should have scheduled my post but that of course would have forced me to be more organized and well.....it is what it is....lol....)...One of these days though....

Tami sent us these adorable images along with some dsp and some tickets...How fun and it also posed a bit of a challenge for me.....I didn't want to cut anything apart until I was sure that is the direction I was going to go with the card...once cut....no more making any mistakes...I used crystal effects on the dots on the umbrella and blue stickles to mimic rain falling from the sky. I love this image and just had to make red shiny boots as well. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the ticket was the movie "Singing in the Rain" so of course I attempted to print that on my "movie ticket"...I had fun with this card...It didn't quite come out like my mind envisioned but all in all I like how it turned out...

Thanks for stopping by...

Until next time.
Hugs,
Carol

Awww....too cute!! Why didn't I think of using the dp this way?? Wonderful card. Your coloring of the image is amazing and I love, love, love, the added raindrops and CB embossing.

I love this card! It is so cute. The circle embossing is just perfect and goes with the umbrella dots. There is a lot of texture on the card and the panels were a great use of the DP.
