So sorry. My internet went down while I was in the middle of posting and just now getting it back. My card pales in comparsion to LC's but I thought it was so cool making a very similar card and using similar products. The sequins that LC added to her rainbow were so awesome. I didn't have any sequins but I played around with adding the colored bling but decided it was just too bulky so I didn't use the bling.

This is for the favorites and for the bonus themes.

This one is for the product, theme, and another for the favorites. I used a black wink of stella on the black part of the boots. It doesn't show up very well in the photo but in irl you can see the shine on the boots. This definitely covers the theme of weather----rain. We had more rain than snow this past winter. And it is also for favorites. TFL!
