Rainy Get Well

I'm back to show you another background project for this week's reader challenge on the PB Blog.

*Edited to add...
I just found out that my fellow Penny Black teammate
Kathy Racoosin is giving away FIVE stamps to FIVE random winners! All you have to do is leave a comment this week on the Penny Black Blog during our "background stamping reader challenge." She'll announce the winners on her blog next week. How cool is that?! Thanks, Kathy!



For my card today, I paired up Sunshine in the Rain with Get Well Soon. I put the rainy background and sentiment on the inside of the card and did some fussy cutting to the front of the card so that everything would show together when the card is closed. The small darker colored cloud is up on foam tape. Stickles were added to the water and raindrops. The bright teal CS colors are from my Sea Breeze Tritone pack.

Here's what it looks like when the card is fully open...



...and here's a better look at the front flap...


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll be back tomorrow with another card with background stamping.
