A Rainy Day Layout

Hello peeps!!
Phew!!!! I managed to complete my entry for For The Love of Crafting Challenge#13.
Currently I live in Bangalore but my roots are in Mumbai. Among the many things I so miss about my home town are food & the rains. Yes, it definitely gets rather messy in the monsoons but I enjoyed watching the rains, through my window whether at work or at home. I also miss all the frequent visits with friends to Lonavala in the monsoon. getting very nostalgic, on a hot summer afternoon in Bangalore (please let the pleasant Bangalore climate make a come back!!! ).
As soon as I read the theme season stories, I knew I wanted to make a monsoon card. I have used the layout at ICR - ISC1 Challenge & the color scheme at Itsy Bitsy's Logo Color Challenge.

Here's the outcome -

A close- up of the picket fence blooming with flowers................isn't the rain all about greenery everywhere?? Don't miss the cute little dragon fly & flower buttons. For the base I used a 12x12 embossed paper & also had a punch to match the embossed swirls in the paper.

The sentiment is hand written &  added a  blue heart shaped rhinestone that I found in my stash & a wooden heart. The intent of the tear shaped bling was to depict rain drops (not sure whether I achieved the desired result though!) & used a doily to make an umbrella.
