Here comes the rain again

Unfortunately this card shows our Summer so far. More rain than sun though we have had a couple of lovely days this week. I have been admiring this gorgeous Saturated canary image for a while and bought her last week. She has coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I also used a Sakura Rosestar pen on her boots and umbrella. The gorgeous papers are Papermania Henbury Lane. I used some raffia lace, which I haven't used for far too long. It looks almost red in this pic but is actually deep pink. The sentiment is from Inadinkadoo, isn't it so true.  The card is an 8 x8 so I used loads of dies for this card, Memory Box umbrella, dragonfly, butterflies and fence and 2 sizes of Nestie. I do love adding charms to cards and bought some more yesterday, some travel ones and some Cinderella ones. They are great value on Ebay and this seller has some really different charms I haven't seen anywhere else. I think the umbrella charm is from The Hobby House. I don;t seem to use Wild Orchid flowers as much as I used to but I really wanted to finish this card off with a lovely flower arrangement.
