Here is my project for this week's party (links to the CDD products I've used are at the bottom of the post):
 
 
I just love the look of blacks and greys as a backdrop for some shot of beautiful bright color!  I knew I wanted to use this Rainy Day Girl digital stamp with some kind of dark rainy day background and my first thought was my watercolors but I just couldn't get a good background that didn't look plain old muddy!

 
And one night in my thinking place (aka my bed in the middle of the night) it came to me!  I could use some great patterned paper and my awesome CDD dies to create the effect of a "gloomy" background.

 
I printed the digital stamp out on white paper and then again on two different design papers.  I cut out the white image and colored in every other panel of the umbrella and the little girl's leggings.  Then I cut out the pieces I wanted to use from the design paper.  And really, I printed two on white in the beginning thinking I was going to do something else so now I have enough leftovers to create another one, alike yet different!  I used my cricut to cut out some raindrops and a puddle.

 
I found this old sentiment in my stash and added a few flowers and some very awesome Doodlebug Sprinkles, a little baker's twine and done!  I love the way it turned out!

 
Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out all of the other Design Team creations and take some time to play along!  You could win some really great stuff!
