First Challenge Card

I've never got round to doing any blog challenges in the whole year (well just over 9 months) that I have been doing this blog so today I thought I'd have a go at  my very first one, the Creative Inspirations blog challenge.  There's a first time for everything!

The theme is a 'Get Well Soon' Card so here's mine:
Appropriate for the weather we've been getting lately!
Close ups:
I've used Promarkers and glossy accents on the girl and I hand drew the raindrops and frame.
I made an interesting background using Johnson's 'Klear' floor polish. In February I did a snow scrapbooking page (see here), using the same technique and loved the effect. 

To do this today I brushed over some silver card with the Klear polish:
and then painted over it with pearlescent acrylic paint:
More 'Klear' was added on top and then I scraped a pattern in it with a comb:
Which makes a lovely irridescent texture:
I know its not as sophisticated as a lot of the cards I see in Blogland, but I do like to make cards that are flat so they don't incur extra postal charges. 

I wish to enter this card into this challenge, CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS (Challenge 44)

Thanks for looking and for any comments, they are always appreciated,
See you tomorrow,
