The Bright Side

I like making collage style cards.  I never quite know where they will go when I start them.  This time I had a challenge to help me focus.  The challenge was to create a card using an umbrella and/or rain.  Personally I love the rain but generally "rain" can be used as a description of "troubles".  "When it rains it pours"... which sort of mirrors my own life at the moment.  So of course I have another really good excuse to make a card to cheer someone up and myself as well.  I have so many bits & pieces to dig through when I'm on the hunt for the perfect thing for my mini collage.  I have a little drawer of fairies that my husband was very nice to fussy cut for me.  I picked this fairy because she looked good against the splotchy smooshy background I picked as a base.  Luckily I found a paper pack with a rainy theme and which also matched the colors I had going on.  After that everything sort of came together pretty easily.
