Rainy Day Layout

I found this fun rain themed paper at Michaels and couldn't wait to create a layout using it.  I used the Simply Charmed cartridge for the title, clouds and raindrops.  The Paisley cartridge was used for the umbrella and boots.
I used my Gypsy to hide several of the features on each of the die cuts in order to add my own embellishments.
The D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder was used to emboss the clouds and the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug embossing folder was used to emboss the boots.
I added a few paper flowers to the boots, umbrella and title with the thought of "April Showers Bring May Flowers".  A little bit of Posy Trendy Twine and bling were also added as an embellishment.
To finish off my layout I added some faux stitching with my white gel pen.  I also added a little bit of doodling to the raindrops.

  13. I love all of the embossing you did on this, and the stitching is perfect! I just started using stitching on my cards and think it just makes the card pop. Great job! I'm a new follower, thanks for following me too! :)
