On to my project....
My card is definitely not a reflection of our weather since they are calling for more snow flurries today. 
 The clouds were sponged with Memento London Fog and Summer Sky, and one popped up for dimension.  Then a wee bit of glitter glue added.
 The rain was created from the negative of the Fancy Cut Out Border and a thin layer of Judikin's Diamond Glaze added. 
The Sun was sponged with Memento Cantaloupe and Tangelo and a wee bit of glitter glue added.
The sentiment was colored with memento Markers directly on the stamp and a wee bit of glitter glue added to the word "sun". The framed with one of the squares from the Square Shaker Frame. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
