Add a heart at Crafty Calendar

 Good morning, the weekend has arrived and with it a new Challenge at Crafty Calendar.
This month we're lucky to be sponsored by the fabulous

The theme for this month is

I was given this lovely digi, Stepping Out , to use. Thank you Andrea.

I've cropped it a bit to fit my design and use Copic markers to colour.
The rainy background is a mixture of DIs and pastels with 'raindrops' made with glossy accents.
Originally I was going to add a rainbow across the top but couldn't decide how to add a heart so I changed my mind and stencilled a heart in rainbow colours lower down the card. The sentiment is a stamp.

There's mor inspiration to be enjoyed over at the challenge blog, hope you can find some time to join us this month.

Thanks for visiting,
have a great weekend.

Your card is amazing... I like the way you cropped the digi, your coloring is stellar, the texture of the rainy grey sky is excellent and the way you incorporated the heart into your artwork is ingenious!
