Newton's Nook Designs March Release - Day 1

Hello again!  Today the March release for Newton's Nook Designs begins!  YAAY!  Today Jennifer is introducing Spring Showers:
Spring Showers is a 3x4 stamp set that includes 10 stamps (4 images & 6 sentiments) and is perfect for a variety of get well soon cards, baby & bridal shower cards, and anytime you want to shower someone with kindness or love!  I never seem to have enough get well cards in my stash, so that was direction I went with my sneak peek creation today:
(please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I created a cloud template and sponged some grey ink to create the stormy skies and cut out a freehand grey cloud and stamped the tiny white cloud from the set.  The cute duck was colored with Chromatix markers and then I added a little Studio G glitter glue (which is just as sparkly as Stickles IMHO, even flows a little bit better) to the raindrops and puddles to make them sparkle.  I paper pieced the umbrella with some springy flowers from a stack by the Paper Studio.  Here is the inside (I wanted a transition from the grey clouds lifting to reveal sunny skies):
