Where I live in Canada, we have waited a loooong time for spring & summer to arrive.  But now it is raining....and raining.....

You know the saying... If life gives you lemons, then make lemonade?  So, here is my card,  inspired by the rainy weather outside.


The raindrops are actually 3D Foam Hearts cut in half and glittered!

The paper collection I used is Simple Stories "Vintage Bliss." 

Here is a quick video tutorial on how I designed this card and the rain drops.  You can also click HERE to watch this on YouTube and subscribe to my Channel.
