Rain or Shine

I didn't have much time to stamp this weekend, but I did get this one card done. Isn't she the cutest. This is a MFT set, Rainy Days Friends, that I have had for a while, and hadn't inked up. The sketch is the sketch challenge at Get Sketchy, and guess who their sponsor is this week! My Favorite Things! Great sketch, one of my very favorite stamp companies, who could ask for more! This is also my card for the MFT challenge at Splitcoast this week, to use buttons.

The DP is Cosmo Crickett. I love this collection! I colored with copics and the rain coat is paper pieced. The buttons on the coat are mini brads from MFT. I cut out the umbrella, and popped it up, added a little glitter to look like rain drops. I stitched around the edges, added lace, a border punch, and a sentiment for the set. Then I made a border with buttons. I threaded each button, and then add the next button and used glue dots to hold them in place. I added a little distress ink around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good week!
