What Do You Do On A Rainy Day

I am really loving
paper pads! I find when I have them on hand, I don't have to search for long to find what I want to put together. As with this ...

I pulled out these...

and created a card.

I did a little
machine stitching and distressing - Black Soot Distress Ink. From my stash, I added a paper doily and some teeny tiny buttons, along with May Arts Red Burlap String. Next came the fun stuff... a couple of blossoms from I Am Roses that I sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz.

The Prima bloom
is an old one... it got a mist of SS Glitz Spritz as well, and was teamed with an I Am Roses skeleton leaf and two pearl stick pins left over from my son's wedding.
Pretty simple... huh?
The verse on the Graphic 45 paper reads:
What do you do on a Rainy day,
Out in the pouring wet?
If your umbrella you have brought,
Laughing beneath you get!
Laugh, then, whether it's wet or fine,
It is your laughter gay
Makes the bright sun seem to shine,
Though 'tis a rainy day!
I thought of several occasion I can use this card for, and when the time comes, I will most likely add an additional sentiment at the bottom of the card.

I am entering my card in these challenges:
City Crafters Challenge - Be Inspired
Word Art Wednesday - Be Ye Kind

Thanks for stopping by!
