Friends are like rainbows - Catch the bug Saturday challenge

Saturday April 18, 2017
Welcome to another challenge at Catch the bug.. The theme for this challenge is RAINING CATS AND DOGS
I don't know about you but I really had to put my thinking cap on for this theme challenge.. Raining Cats and Dogs..  what!!!! what does that mean... well I found this cute sentiment from My Favorite things so I then grabbed some rainbow colored papers and using a My Favorite Things die I cut out the little frame and windows from 5 different papers.. So you will probably see those other frames and innards in future cards... LOL... Then I went through my stash of already printed Bugaboo imagesOnce I figured it out I then went and printed them a lot smaller.. I fussy cut them out and added them on foam dots to the windows of the card. I added some hearts and stars from Simon Says die.. To me it's raining cats and dogs... What do you think??  The images are colored with copics and I added some white gel dots and the little blue window I used rain drops from the MFT stamp set and colored them with Spectrum Noir glitter brush.  I think I nailed it...
