I was inspired to make this card after it rained for 5 consecutive days here, and I spent the entire week cold and wet.  The cloud is made of felt with sequins and beads.  (It's a little hard to make out the beading at the bottom of the cloud because I used clear, long beads with a subtle sheen.  But trust me, they're there, and they show up better in person!)  I wrote "keep warm and dry!" at the top of the card.  I'm sending it to my friend in Oregon since the rainy season is just starting there.

Did I mention that the sun came out today right after I finished this project?  As proof, I'm including a sunny photo.   Smiley

Thanks for the all the compliments, guys!  The background is cut up newspaper print decoupaged onto cardboard.  The print doesn't show up too well in the pic--a tad blurry.  And I guess if I was *super* clever, I would have used a newspaper article about the weather (but I didn't).   Cheesy
