Showers of Blessings!

This card is for today's SCS Inspiration Challenge(IC201)! Thanks, Stef!!!
Here is the picture I chose as my inspiration.

I cannot believe that I did not sponge anything. I decided to keep this card clean and fresh so to speak. I always love the air after a wonderful shower. It is like it renews the air of harmful stuff. This card is also for this week's SCS Sketch Challenge(SC249). I love this sketch and finally had a chance to use it. Thanks, Roxie!

I am using Sweet 'n Sassy digital stamp set called Showers of Blessings. You can see my card and commentary at the SNSS blog, too. I am using some K & Co. life's journey dp to mimic the background or wall behind the wall pendant. I copied the little girl, enlarged her, pasted the sentiment beside her, printed, and colored with copics. I added some sakura gel pen to the rain drops and lines.

I kept this card pretty simple and I think somewhat elegant even with a whimsical image. The wide bordeaux ribbon is wide enough to act as the horizontal element in the sketch and an embellishment. I added a few clear gems to mimic some of the sparkle and shine in the inspiration piece.
