Sentimental #142 - Lace & Pearls

Happy Sunday!

It's time for another Sentimental Sunday Challenge - Pretty Laces & Pearls (plus a sentiment)

And we are sponsored by the lovely Krista of Saturated Canary!

Krista's images are darling and perfect for coloring therapy...and if you're in need of a little happy, be sure to grab a cup of something yummy and take time to visit her blog and say hello!

Speaking of color therapy, have you been by Designed to Color (DTC)? Need some color inspiration? How about a sketch? Using the current DTC sketch challenge and the Tuesday Trigger (Moxie Fab World) ...

I designed this card:

Sometimes we need a card that isn't celebratory. LET IT RAIN is a lovely digi that reminded me of 'the winds of change' and that Life can be less than...well, whatever we wanted it to be.

I'm not really a Led Zeppelin fan, but "The Rain Song" has lyrics that are thoughtful:

These are the seasons of emotion and like the winds they rise and fall,
This is the wonder of devotion - I see the torch we all most hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient - Upon us all a little rain must fall.

Lots of 'rain' going you remember my dirty tags? Here's the one I used on this card, used as is, before I added a few more card layers, made with Distress Inks and Glimmer Mists:

On the inside...Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist drippage and a bit of splatter. 

Glossy Accents used to make 'rain drops' and more Tattered Angels mist used for the cloudy background. Click the picture to see more detail.

I adore the melancholy, thoughtful feel of this digi. I'm humming Bill Withers' Ain't No Sunshine as I'm's hoping to a week of sunshine and happy.

Can't wait to see what you make!

Inky hugs,
