Allsorts Challenge #721 - ATG/opt. Rain

 Hi Crafters,

It's lovely to see you here again, it's Saturday and you know what that means, another fabulous new challenge at Allsorts. Check out the prizes on offer to the lucky winners for this months challenges in my post below.

Our optional theme this week is


I found this a difficult challenge to begin with as I don't seem to have many stamps on this theme and the ones I did have were already represented by other Teamies, then I remembered a Memory Box die in my stash called 'A Little Rain' - it cuts out the rain drops into your card. I coupled it with a cute Bugaboo image (sadly no longer trading) and the card came together.
