Rainy Days better with Friends

Oh how I wish I could spend all my rainy days splashing in the puddles with my friends lol. That is what my creation is doing for the new challenge over at Creative Moments. So before I show you my card let me tell you about the challenge. We are an always anything goes challenge blog, and for this challenge there is no optional twist - so just show us what you have been making.

We have several sponsors for this challenge:
Who are offering 4 images to the winner

Creative Bug
Who are offering 5 images to the winner
Paper Nest Dolls
Who are offering 3 images to the winner
...and I am working with Avery in Rain Poncho from Papernestdolls.
I coloured the image using some Script grey tone markers I got from Aldi, which are actually not bad at all and they cost about £7 for 12 pens. I used papermania watercolour pens for the raincoat and duck. I used my paper cutter from Hobbycraft to cut the edge of the image. I layered blue patterned paper onto a yellow gingham and added some washi tape strips in greys and yellows. These were layered onto a pastel orange base card. Finally I added liquid pearls to the top of the image (the top one is supposed to be squashed! Honest!) and layered some paper flowers together, with a diamante, to match the colours of the image. The sentiment was made on the computer.

I would like to add this card for the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps - baby it's cold outside
TIOT - Fire and Ice (warm colours with cold greys and cold image)
SOS #338 Birthday
CCEE1803 Baby its cold outside
polkadoodles wk3 - winter Birthday

Thanks for looking, and do pop back soon,
