A quick card to play along with this week's CASology cue word - wet.  I have only just got this one in under the wire :)

I am on holiday this week over the kids' easter holidays so I hope that I will have a chance to make some cards although there are lots of things that we want to do - including planting some veg for the first time.  Given our limited experience with gardening I wonder if we will produce anything edible!

I used a (new to me) sentiment from Mama Elephant along with a paper pieced umbrella from Penny Black.  I thought the sentiment worked well with the cue word and I popped the rainbow banner up on some patterned paper.  I die cut a circle and used that as a mask to ink round the sentiment in tumbled glass distress ink.

I have just realised that I can use this card to play along with Make the Day Special's first challenge too - Anything Goes as it features a Mama Elephant stamp that I bought from the store :)

Thanks for stopping by!
