Scraps Card #30 Rain Rain Go Away...

Finally, I get a little inspiration from the rain.  I actually like the rain, the sound and the smell after a beautiful rainfall is so fresh and new.  Plus, the flowers and green grass are a sure sign that Summer is coming!
I am getting close to the end of the Scraps Card Series with only 1 card left.  Very hard to believe but it got rid of a lot of my scraps.  I guess I'm a scrap-horder!  My new card series will begin next week with a Masculine card theme.  I am planning on making 10 masculine adult cards and 10 male children's cards.
My card base measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and was cut from White Cardstock.  The blue mat was from my scraps and was cut at 5 1/4" x 4".  The blue & white argyle mat was also from my scrap stash and measures 5" x 3 3/4".  I also cut a strip of brown measuring 5" x 1".
For this card I used the following Cricut Cartridges:  Paper Doll Dress Up, Everyday Paper Dolls and Create a Critter.  I used scraps for all of my cuts.  
The fence was cut from white cardstock from Paper Doll Dress Up at 1 1/2".  This is found on p. 78 of the manual.  The raindrops were cut at 2 1/2" from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  The cut is found on p. 42.
The umbrella, duck, rain cloud, pond and boots were all cut from the Create a Critter cartridge.  Most of these cuts are found on p. 31 and the cloud and pond are found on page 52.  The cloud was cut at 1 1/2" from grey, and the pond (water) was cut at 1" and 1/2" from blue cardstock.  
The duck & boots were cut at 2 3/4" and the Umbrella was cut at 2".  
I used my Cuttlebug: Divine Swirls embossing folder on the clouds and chalked around the edges of the cloud and all cuts.  I also added Glossy Accents to the raindrops and the water.
Both sentiments were printed from my computer.
