Newton's Nook Design March Release: Spring Showers

I'm so excited - Jennifer at Newton's Nook has asked me to join in and play with their new release stamps for March!  And they're so stinking cute, you're going to love them!
This set is called Spring Showers, and is perfect for a get well card. 
Can you see the Wink fo Stella glimmer I added to the clouds? I also added some GLossy Accents to the umbrella, the puddle, and the buttons on the little duck's boots. 

Here's another, very different card I made with the same set:
 This one is a one-layer card.  I masked the front and inked with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Salty Ocean, and then stamped and white embossed the clouds, raindrops and sentiment.  I drew a shadow around the white embossing with a C3 Copic marker, to make the white stand out a bit more.  I finished with some faux stitching and some Wink of Stella on the clouds and raindrops.
