Rain or Shine

Afternoon peeps. The weather can not make up it's mind here today. Hazy sunshine but a lot cooler. It will be typical if the weather turns a lot colder and rains next week as OH was going to start digging out for his larger pond. He doesn't want to leave the fish too long in the paddling pool that he has bought to put them in while he is digging out. Lol!!!! Photo inspiration for SSDS Challenge.
My Card. The colours are deeper than what it shows in the photo above.

The stamped image is "Rain or Shine" 40-024 from Penny Black. The colouring medium is Promarkers. The edges have been stippled with "Spun Sugar" DI. I haved used an X Cut corner punch. The dp is "Sequence" item #653 by Nancie Rowe-Janitz Fancy Pants Designs. I don't always agree with the coordinating colours they put together. The pale paper is a light pink subtle lace pattern, not sure it goes with the dark brown spotty paper. The flowers are recycled from an old card, also the green pearls on the umberella trim. The butterfly has been cut out of pink glitter card using a Spellbinders die S3-038 Butterflies.

I am entering this for:-

Thank you for looking and I hope the sun is shining on you brightly.
