An Oldie But Goodie for the Stash

Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog
I love OBG day because I can break out some of my favorite Bugaboo Stamps to play with, and have an excuse to show them on my blog! lol! (As if I need an excuse, right?!)

Today I am using the Deacon Rain from Bugaboo Stamps.  This is the first time I've colored him, and I've had him in my files for a long time. Shame on me! He's so cute, and I thought he was perfect for a 'get well' type of card.

This is a CAS, clean and simple, card. I used a piece of K&Co dp and some scrap card stock to help show him off. My little edge anchor is an 'oldie but goodie', too! It is from CTMH, from back in my consultant days (I think around 2000, if I'm not mistaken). I have a few of them left, and I think they're so cool! I tried to find some similar embellishes online, but to no avail. I'm going to checkout the local craft stores to see if I can find anything like it, in some different colors. 

Anyhow, back to the card. Per my norm, the image is colored in PhotoShop Elements, then printed. The curve is a freehand cut. I added some Stickles Star Dust to the rain drops and the puddle. The sentiment is something I typed in PSE, before printing my image. I used a font called Dash Dot, which was part of a downloadable CD I had used back in my CTMH days, too.
