Spring Shower

     My Johnny Luv, the great enabler, love of my life and fireworks fanatic, has purchased the House Mouse stamp of the month for me for the last 5 years.  This month's stamp is particularly adorable and I couldn't wait to ink it up.  I created this card for a "Keep It Simple" swap on my House Mouse list.  Now as you all know that is a difficult challenge for me.  I love layers, and layers and layers and fussy cutting, but I think I mostly managed to meet the criteria.

     I stamped and colored with my favorite Prisma Pencils and OMS then added some Stickles to the raindrops and bubbles.  I purchased some really cute acrylic bubble embellishments recently just for this card.( I unfortunately don't remember where and who makes them but they are definitely fun.)  I added a couple of white layers as matting and ta-da all finished - Sweet - Simple - Fun.  I call this card Spring Shower,  I just couldn't resist the pun.

  10. I love how realistic you made the bubels look.

    This reminds me of when I was in Nicaragua and the rainy seasons started all of a sudden one night. We where up in the mountains in a jungle clinic with out water and we all just grabbed our shampoo and washed our hair on the porch in the rain. :P
