Rain and Shine in Yellow - Shabby Chic Collage Card

Here's a spring shabby chic collage card to brighten up your day!
I started off with inspiration from

I appreciate the daffodil yellow focal of this inspiration picture.
I intend to do another interpretation if other design work doesn't interfere, but here's the first.

With a cutout from a magazine of the yellow boots
(and let me tell you I sure miss my sunshine yellow Wellies this year...dry rot is an awful thing! :(
the card came together bit by bit to make a cheerful friendship card that says visually, 
"No matter what, we'll choose joy!"

More challenges:

I used the boots, umbrella and the recycled dryer sheet (cheap mulberry paper substitute...and it smells nice! WIN ;) for a sort of "cloud" effect.

Sadly, this is also the last challenge from Deep Ocean Challenges, which I have enjoyed playing along with in the past and filled a Guest DT spot for a few years ago.
The last challenge theme is Easter/Spring and I want to wish all the DT the very best.
Challenges come and go, I think mostly because we all have busy and stressful lives going on behind the scenes, but the great thing about our community is that we stay open to each other and there's always something new to bring back after each step back for self-care.  I do wish all the DT a happy Easter and many beautiful days ahead, rain or shine.

I also left the sentiment space blank on this card so that I can tailor it for just the right moment.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will enjoy the sunshine--
but also get out your puddlestomping boots, ready to fully enjoy Spring 
(when she finally, truly and ACTUALLY arrives!)
Robin asked me about puddlestomping last week and said he missed it; I said,
Well, I think we need to find some new boots then, don't we? :)

And we did.  So now you know where I'll be after the next not-too-cold rainstorm:
having a great time outside with some happy kids, that's where.

 Be well, --Kathryn
