Thinking of you

Hello everyone

As promised here is a card made with my recent crafty purchases. Sorry about the photo quality - the sun was very bright today, shouldn't complain really.

I started with a piece of lilac centura pearl card stock which I scored and folded in half to form the card base. I ran half the card through an M-bossabilities garden lattice embossing folder. I then cut a piece of paper from LOTV's Promises paper pad using a Spellbinder's matting basics A die and matted it onto the card base. The image is James - umbrella (ST488) from LOTV and has been coloured with the following Promarkers - 
  • James - warm grey 1, warm grey 2, warm grey 3, black and blender
  • umbrella - lavender, lilac, orchid, amethyst, ice grey 3 and ice grey 5
  • puddles and rain - april showers and polar blue
  • sky - pastel blue
I added some glossy accents to James' nose and as rain drops on the umbrella, cut the image out using scissors and inked around the edge with milled lavender distress ink. I then matted the image onto a Spellbinder's Reflective moments die cut from Promises paper pad which I inked whilst still in the die with milled lavender distress ink. I attached the image to the card base.
The sentiment is from a Papermania set which I cut out using the smallest die in the Reflective moments die set and inked whilst still in the die with milled lavender distress ink. To finish I added a lilac bow and spotty button.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
