Springtime rain

Everything has turned green and the flowers have bloomed so early this year because of the warm temperatures.  This challenge from Pollycraft (Water, water everywhere) is a good reminder of spring...it is my favorite season...i love seeing things grow and the color combinations are beautiful.  The red bud tree against the newness of the green is breathtaking i think and add a bit of carved gray rock and it's gorgeous.  Well, my card doesn't depict that at all, but that's what i think of when i think of spring and what the rain brings.

This is my card based of the Pollycraft Monday challenge of  "water, water everywhere":


















This is the sketch i used from Sketches by Carly:
