Card for two Challenges - Mo and Cute Card Thursday

Hi Girls sorry Ive not been around for a couple of days, but yesterday was our big shopping day, we go to Cardiff once a month to do a big shop, and as its 42 miles away it takes at least 5 hours to do it, what with the travelling and putting it away when we get back, there isnt much energy left to do much else.
Anyway todays card has been created for two Challenges yet again, Mo's "Anthing to do with Water" and Cute Card Thursdays "Masculine" so Ive used this gorgeous image of Mo's to create a rain/puddle scene. Ive printed it onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, after which I cut it out with my Octagon Nestabilitie die, and I also created the mount with some dark blue card and a slightly larger die. The sentiment is one of My Favorite Things Clear Stamp set, which actually arrived this week from Simon Says, so it couldnt be better, this was also mounted on a piece of left over blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, with a first layer of dark blue card, and two of three papers from the Nitwit Downloads called Puddle Jumping, and these were stuck for a first layer and over the seam Ive stuck a strip of dark clouds (the third paper) which I have along both sides used a Martha Stewart Border punch, its one with holes and felt they looked a bit like rain drops.
The mounted image was stuck in the centre with the sentiment underneath. To finish of Ive stuck four gems down the edge on the right just to give it a bit more glitter. Hope that your like it.

Oh Shirley, the big shop day. Do you know I used to really enjoy the monthly shop, but now I dread it and take the first opportunity to order out.

Trouble is with that some of the pickers have really weird ideas about substitutions - how can you substitute a free range chicken with a pack of cooked drumsticks ? But they did !

Nice card by the way,sorry got carried away with shopping.
