Under the Weather

Here is the card I made today:

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white card stock for the card base.  I then cut some rain patterned card stock at 5 3/8"x4 1/8" as a mat.

The banners are from "Bits and Pieces."  It is one cut and is 0.84" tall.  I kept the longer one straight and angled the shorter one a bit, then trimmed them at the left edge of the card.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Sweet Somethings set.

The girl with the umbrella is from the Cricut cartridge "A Child's Year."  She is cut at 1 1/2."  I put her on a layered circles.  The blue circle is 1.7" and the kraft circle is 1.9."  They are adhered to the card with pop dots for some dimension.

I finished the inside of this card as well.  The rain patterned card stock is cut at 5 1/4"x4."  The green mat is 4 1/4"x3" and the white mat is 4"x2 3/4."  I used another stamp from Scrappy Moms Stamps for the sentiment.  It is also from the Sweet Somethings set.  The umbrella is from "A Child's Year," and is cut at 1 1/4."  The rain is a digital image from Creativebug, called Raindrops.

I made this for the following challenges:
