Enjoy the rain

So after a very wet week of camping I wanted to say thanks to my other half, both for the break and for all my lovely new wet weather gear, which did a fine job whilst we were away. When I saw the image 'Enjoy the rain' over at Saturated Canary I knew it was perfect. It's basically what I've looked like for most of the week, maybe not with such perfectly groomed hair though! lol
I've been challenge browsing, April shower's and film tittle's came up. So I have a combination of 2 films. 'Singing in the rain' & 'Carry on camping'. Both great films :)
Frosted designs fabulous Friday challenge is Hexagons. I initially rummaged through my papers for hexagon designs, and although I'm sure I have some. I couldn't find them. I've been wanting to make a different shape card, from my normal love of  square cards, so I thought hexagon card, and surprisingly it's quite easy. It's my lovely square card with all the corners cut off! I shall definitely be doing one of these again.
I've cut out extra elements and added extra dimension with foam pads. Then I've silver lined my clouds with glitter, and the rain drops on the image too.

The LO is based on Janine's sketch from sketchy challenges. I've moved my elements around a bit to fit in with the hexagon shape card.

I'm entering the following challenges

The Secret Crafter Challenge 182 - Singing in the rain & carry on camping
The Crazy challenge inspired by movie - Singing in the rain & carry on camping

  1. Holy Moly TC, this is a wonderful shape for a card! I love all your outdoor elements with sunshine, clouds, rain, blue sky and that tent. The way you've showcase the SC image is excellent in the film reel. What a great layout and all done on this groovy shape. Sounds like you had a blast and what a tribute to it. :)
