Its Crafting Time DT Challenge - Embossing Folder

Inspired by last weeks success with shrink plastic and gilding flakes, I decided to make something sparkley!
The theme for the DT challenge at ITC this week is embossing folders; at papercreationsink it is 'April Showers Bring May Flowers'; and at crafts4eternity' the theme is spring.
Combining all of these I came up with my ATC design.

The background is Tim Holtz Core Dinations card in 'Faded Jeans'.
I have embossed it using 'Drip Drop' universal embossing folder from Craft Concepts'.
The flowers are cut from the same coredinations card using 'Rose Creations' Spellbinders dies. The flowers have then been embossed with 'Polka Dots' embossing folder by Crafts-Too. The leaves are from the same die set, cut in card from my stash.
In both cases I have sanded the embossing to reveal the paler core.
The flowers have been coated with Crafters Companion 'Spray and Sparkle'. This makes them a darker shade and a bit sparkley.
The drips have had lines of 'Diamond' Stickles down them.
The little girl in the rain is a Paper Mania stamp, 'Rainy Day'. I stamped it in Archival 'Jet Black' onto shrink plastic, allowed it to dry and then heated it to shrink. The back has been coated with Indigo Blu mega-flake 'Winter Dawn'.
The little bow and blue gem are from my stash.

This really reminds me of running about in wellies in teh puddles when I was little, right down to the bobbed hair and 'proper' coat!
