Under My Umbrella

This is my second post for tonight and it is based on the sketch over at Friday Sketchers - sketch #7 shown below:

This is the card I decided to make following this sketch:

I used a Pollycraft image from the Cherry Kisses Frames range and this one is called Rainy Days.  I have coloured her in using metallic pencils and I also added a border of little umbrellas from my wordprocessing software.  I have also chalked the background so that the white didn't shout out at me.  The paper is from a company called Digiscraps 3 and is called butterfly kisses. 

The fibre across the middle is from a candy I won some time back and the flower is made up of a bought flower from Eminesence and some punched flowers I made myself and secured with a pink brad.
So the challenges I am entering this for are:
Cupcake Craft Challenges     -     Digital Images
Creative Card Crew              -     Strings attached

My time to Craft                    -     Under my umbrella
