It's finally raining here and that is good news for the farmers! I welcome the rain too, after a dry spell in the spring-it washes away the coating of yellow pollen and muddy cat tracks on my car. For some reason not known to me, my husband just loves to sit outside on an old style lawn chair to watch the rain come in and hear the thunder roll in the sky, he's taught our boys to appreciate that as well so I'm taking a bit of time to post this card.
This layout for this card came from Sketchy Thursdays Second Chance Challenge sponsored by the Lawn Fawn Stamps. The colors came from the latest Curtain Call Color Challenge. I really enjoyed working with the layout and the colors, because they were truly a challenge, but for some reason I didn't hit the mark with my overall card. I almost didn't post this, but I figured I would try to reach out and attempt to get some feedback? Do I have too many patterns? Is the scale not right? Is the balance of colors off? Please help!
