A Rainy day sketch and a big SALE!

It's a beautifully cool rainy day here in Kentucky. Not a typical July summer day, but pleasant all the same. The rain we've had the last couple days inspired my card for this week's challenge on Inspirational Card Sketches. I really liked the sketch style of the multiple boxes and the card just took off!

The image is Emma, one of the cute fairies by Paper Makeup Stamps. She's sporting a cute orange umbrella, hot pink and turquoise ensemble and sparkling green wings. Just the way a rain loving fairy should look! The quote is from the July 09 Release and is part of the digi set called Raindrops and Rainbows. I've used quotes from this set a few times because it's just a great set for pairing with Emma.

This card is very sparkly with Stickles used in a lot of outlining. I used Waterfall for all the rain and the puddles, Stardust for the wings and main image outline and then my favorite color Sequins for the outline of the quote. It is a sight to see when the light (for lack of sunshine!) hits it!
