Stormy Tuesday and another new card!

I was woken at 4am this morning with thunder and lightning, nothing unusual for Texas but unwelcome in the middle of the night.
The weather continued to rumble as was still threatening at 7am when we all got up.
By 9am it was "throwing it down", a good English phrase for raining heavily and the temps in the house dropped from 80 to 70 so hurray no AC today!
It seems like a happy coincedence as yesterday I used my Tilda in Spring Rain for the first time and that's what I'm sharing today!

I thought I'd share the inside too. I haven't graduated to added stamped images on the inside yet but I do like to coordinate the inners and outers :)

She was quite hard to color, I just couldn't work out shadows on the stripes so I had to sweep over with the blender and leave it at that.
I did this card using the sketch on the super new blog Magnolia-Licious Highlights
The dp are DCWV from The Green Stack which I absolutely love. The papers are all textured and they are 70% recycled so I can feel good about using them. The flowers are the Fairytale collection from Prima, the ribbon is Offray, the border punch is EK Success and the sentiment another $1 bin one from Michaels.
I hope you all have a great and safe day no matter what your weather brings.
