DoubleClick Skittles Challenge - Something New

 Welcome to a brand new challenge at DoubleClick Skittles!

Challenge #38 - Something New

Dec. 23 - Jan. 5

So what's my "something new"?  Why, fresh, newly fallen rain, of course.  Don't you just love the smell of fresh rain?  I do.  Especially in the Spring, when it mixes with the smell of fresh cut grass..... mmm.... And, there's nothing like being a kid and stomping in the rain and puddles.  Those were good times.

I'm using the Frosty Blue Skittles from the newest holiday release, Frosty Kisses.  This card is a real beauty in person, let me tell you.  My edges were inked with Ranger Faded Jeans distress ink and the raindrops are a digital image from Creativebug.   I used the Print and Cut feature of my Cricut Explore, then accented with Glossy Accents, to give my rain that "wet" look, adding a few "droplets" of Skittles.

The umbrella is also a free digital file that was offered up by Jillibean Soup.  I love how this umbrella turned out!  I used Ranger Fossilized Amber, chalk ink, liquid pearls and more Glossy Accents. 

The new Holiday colors for the 2015 year!!  Grab some today and start the New Year crafting with "Something New".  You will love them, I promise!
