Under the Weather

I had a notion to make a card in pastel citrus colours, here's the zesty and cheerful card I came up with.
The image is a digi from Bugaboo and has been coloured with Promarkers.  To create the rain, I made teardrop shapes with Liquid Pearls, then sprinkled on some Glamour Dust while it was still wet for lots of sparkle.
The papers are Papermania Spring Chic, to which I've added some tangerine card.  I inked all the edges and the scallops on the blank with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.
The sentiment was made with a Kanban ticket stamp and a Personal Impressions sentiment stamp, I use these two sets together quite a lot.  The flowers are ancient Papermania ones which have been lurking in my stash for years and the leaves were mad with a Woodware punch.  To finish off I added some ribbon, a bow and a few pearls.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
