This is another Krista Smith image call "Rain". A great image to practice my shadows and highlights on. (I do wish I had printed her off a tad bit bigger). LOL! I used all scrap paper on this card. That is one of the reasons I decided to color her with the blue and green colors. She looks as if she might be a very practical girl. She is heading for a party but is bringing her umbrella and boots just in case! LOL! I added a lovely bow from seam binding....THANKS Amanda! The seam binding is green with some blue tints that went perfect with my card. I added a tiny mulberry rose and a bit of Stickles. Paper lace from a die-namics die  and rhinestones finished off my card.  Because the wind is blowing her hair this is my song for the day!

Way out west they got a name for rain and wind and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire is Joe, and they call the wind Mariah
Oh, no, Mariah blows the stars around and sends the clouds a-flying
Mariah makes the mountains sounds, like folks up there were dying
Mariah, Mariah, they call the wind Mariah
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
