Cooling Down

This card is a combination of 2 challenges...City Crafter Challenge "Cooling Down" to use the inspiration photo and colors shown to the left and Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenge ac166. The Grass Stamp from Annabelle's "All Things Grow" was stamped in Memento Toffee Crunch ink on a white cardstock rectangle and sponged with Memento Summer Sky ink.  I added some adhesive Rain Dots by Cloud 9 Design to give that wet look and some dimension. I used a turquoise card base that I embossed sides with Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles EF and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink  to darken a bit and give a wet look....does not show very well in photo.  I finished with strips of textured carmel card stock and an Annabelle sentiment .
