Less is More

It's been forever since I participated in this on-line challenge-not that I haven't want to, but betwen this and that it just hasn't happened. But this week's challenge is using a diecut and I made this card Sunday which fits the bill perfectly.
I think it does at least.
So here it is.

Although I might be a bit early with the rain theme- it isn't April showers yet, but I am wishing it was April so that was my inspiration to make this card. I chose  this great spring robin's egg blue cardstock (with the corners rounded) I attached this die cut frame (Sizzix). Then I stamped this fun Riley the Moose stamp. I also stamped Mr. Moose onto some white paper, colored him and then cut him out and attached him onto the card over the original stamped image. I wanted all those raindrops and splashes to show up and didn't quite know how to cut them out without getting a lot of white background paper. I suppose I could have just die cut the whole image to fill the circle in the frame, but I do like showing more the background color within the frame too. I added a few Viva paintpen dots to the umbrella . Finally, I stamped the saying (Stampotique). I'm not quite sure what the little spot on Mr. Moose's nose is-it is not on the original card at all.
That's my card!!!
Enjoy your day-
Thanks for dropping by and visiting.

Thanks for joining us Erika, I think we could do with Riley bringing rain rather than asking for it to go away, I heard on the tv today that a hose-pipe ban is likely before too long!
Cute card.
Thanks so much
