Spring showers for a little duck at Sweet Stampin' .....

My second post of the day - this time for Sweet Stampin'.  This week we want to see your creations representing the weather. 

Our sponsors this week are Digis with Attitude, and Whimsie Doodles.

I wonder why it is that we always think of rain when the weather is mentioned, but guess what, that is exactly what I chose for this challenge.  My lovely little duck is from Tiffany Doodles.  I have coloured with Copics.  The papers are from Sweete Shoppe digis.  They come with a range of extra elements to use, so I added the white cloud formations and raindrops to the background of dark slouds.  The sentiment was one of many included with the set.  Buttons and clear Dewdrops have been added to complete the picture.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

CardmadFairy Digi Day - back to nature
Card Making Mamas - Animals - well a duck is an animal!!
Fabulous Friday - Re-use something - my buttons and thread are from my old button box
Paper Cutz - Use 3 patterned papers
