A rainy day...

I made this card for a friend who went through a rough patch last week. I wanted her to know that we care about how she feels, and that with time, things do get easier to handle.

Close up of little girl. Close up of ribbon and purse.
Close up of sentiment and flowers.
I made up the sentiment, and on the inside it says: "The sun will shine again any day now." I did paper piecing with the top of the umbrella and her raincoat. I'm not sure where I got all of my embellishments; this is the first time I've put a metal embellishment on a card. I used stickles on the puddle of water and the rain drops. The papers are all by K&Co.

This is one of the stamps by Crafter's Companion. I thought she was so precious. They also come with their own sentiment, but it was a little too large for this card. I used Promarkers to color the image.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
