H2H-Raindrops Keep Falling

The challenge theme at Heart 2 Heart Challenges this week is "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head".  I had tons of great ideas for this challenge...but they all seemed to involve stamps I did not own!  An umbrella stamp would have really came in handy!

My cloud background was sponged on with a scallop border die.  I then added multiple layers of punched clouds to give dimension.  Bitty sparkles make perfect rain drops!  My ribbon is not that bright in person!  I dyed plain white ribbon with  my Sky ink to match my card.  For some reason the ribbon is showing much brighter in the photo.

My inside sentiment was printed off, sadly no bold sentiment stamps either!  Thinking I really need to add to the stamp collection!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1476 Card Chatter-Sympathy Stamp Set
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
X5761 Sky Cardstock
Z2194 Sky Ink
Tuxedo Black Ink-Memento
