If raindrops were kisses...

I love this little sentiment! 'If raindrops were kisses, I'd send you a storm.' How cute is that?! When I saw this new stamp from MFT released last week, I immediately knew I had to make a card using it with the sentiment. I love making mooshy-gooshy cards, lol.
I don't use this paper piecing technique too often, but I love the effect when I see others do it. I decided to give it a try. The paper is the 'Be Loved' collection from My Mind's Eye.
I made a panel of embossed raindrops to adhere the sweet little girl to, using an old Fiskars texture plate. Of course, I highlighted some of the drops with Star Dust Stickles, and added some of these sweet little pearl hearts from Hero Arts. I distressed some white twill ribbon with Antique Linen Distress ink and made a double bow with it. White was just too stark for this card.

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting!
