Rain or Shine!

I received my My Favorite Things order earlier in the week and have been wanting to play with this set .... well I finally got around to playing! The sketch for this card is this weeks MFT sketch challenge which can be found in the Members Forums of SCS.

I finally used my rectangle nestabilities on this card too ... I have had them for a few weeks now. The scallop rectangle wasn't exactly the right size for the image ... so I just cut across the rectangle at the end of one of the scallops and then joined it up again so that one of the scallops is overlapping the other ... I know it is joined and I can't see the join :)

I used the same DP as I used for my cupcake card I created last night ... I thought it would make a nice coat so just had to use it again ... I paper pieced the coat on the girl and also the dog ... but it is harder to see the pattern on the dogs coat.
