Waiting for the storm to pass

Happy weekend! I'm writing this post on Friday the middle of a thunderstorm!!! My poor Mathilda is 'waiting for the storm to pass' snuggled up to her Daddy on the sofa...that dog is such a wuss! She never used to be bothered at all by storms or thunder but she's definitely bothered now! Maybe she needs to learn to dance...oh, she's not at all keen on rain either!
My card is for this weeks challenge at Sweet Stampin' where the theme 'Black, White and a splash of one other colour'. My card is very simple and needs little explanation. The image is of course an Uptown Girls stamp, left uncoloured. Her wellies, brolly and the centre of the flower are paper pieced. The sentiment came with the stamp.
There are some gorgeous cards over on the challenge blog awaiting your delectation, just click here to visit and to add your own fabulous creation, please follow our theme and don't forget to stamp!
Have a great weekend!
