A yellow cheer-up-springcard

I've tried to make a kind of cheer-up springtimecard.
I used a lot of yellowcolour on the card, as I think it is such a bright, good-feeling colour :D
And can you see how happy Dexter is, jumping up and down in a puddle, with a frog.
Disliking rainy days is maybe a grownup thing...
The quote "Det er etter regn at fuglene synger" (Birds are singing after rain) is from Bjørnstjerne Bjørnsons "En fallitt", and I think it gives a hope that everything will be better.
The stampimage is "Dexter in a puddle" from Motivet. I've coloured it with ProMarkers. Inspired by Papirdokkenes challengepicture I coloured Dexters boots red, and then glossed them with Glossyaccents - I'm not sure it'll show much in the picture, but in real it shows very well, a nice touch, I think ...
The redcoloured bow and the red stitching on the buttons are also an inspiration from that challenge :)
All frontside panels are sewn along the edges - the top layer was kind of hard for the needle to go through, but I made it... :)
While making this card I got a new borderpunch (Docrafts Xcut), and I had to use it right away - I already feel I'll be using it a lot :)
For inside panels I've used Spellbinders Labels Four.
The textstamp inside is from Inkadinkadoo (clearstamps 98842).
The card is made after I love ProMarkers last challengesketch, but unfortunately I didn't make it on time for that challenge -

  12. One thing I would like to say is that car insurance cancellations is a dreaded experience so if you're doing the right things as a driver you won't get one. Some people do receive the notice that they've been officially dropped by their insurance company and many have to struggle to get additional insurance from a cancellation. Cheap auto insurance rates are usually hard to get after a cancellation. Understanding the main reasons pertaining to auto insurance cancellations can help drivers prevent burning off one of the most important privileges available. Thanks for the ideas shared through your blog.
