Rain in the Forecast

This week's Raise the Bar challenge is to use a weather theme on your card - rain, sunshine, snowflakes...let us see what your forecast will be! The bar tenders have made some beautiful samples, so be sure and check them out HERE. I knew right away I wanted to paper piece this sweet PI gal in her raincoat! The layout is for MFT's Wednesday Sketch Challenge and the colors are for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge to use black, red, cream & yellow.
STAMPS: My Umbrella (MFT), Tiny Tags (SU)
PAPER: Modern Homemaker (October Afternoon), Vintage cream, Black
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: MS border punch, Tiny tag punch (SU), Prima, Copics, Corner chomper.

Love the paper pieced umbrella and boots and how you used the CTD colours, Wanda :) MS border punch is fabulous in black.

Hi Wanda~

Congratulations! You have won a "Card of the Week" from the He IS Able blog! When you left a comment there for me about your houndstooth paper...which I became eligible to receive a free card and envelope from the blog.

Please visit the blog and look at the post from Wednesday, March 20th for details!

Now, on to this precious card. It is perfect timing! We have had torrential downpours for 3 days! Even in the rain the person on your card couldn't help but feel cheerful with that beautiful and bright dp! And,that rose is just amazing! I like the little tag hanging off of it! If I had made this card representing me with these storms my sign would have said, "Help Wanted! Building Ark!"

Please be sure to check out the blog before Tuesday 8pm EDT. Have a wonderful weekend!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
