Feeling under the weather?

This afternoon I had a delivery of some nice new goodies
to play with,
from The Stamp Bug.
A couple of things - Glimmer Mists and Distress Inks -
are going to take me a while to get the hang of using.

My card is for this week's Simon Says Stamp,
which is a recipe challenge.
3 embellishments
2 papers
1 image.
It is also based on the sketch over at Mojo Monday.

The stamp is Pink Gem, Milly in the Rain and
Milly's coat, boots and umbrella are paper pieced.
Then I added some glimmer mist to the boots and brolly.
It's hard to photo this, but it does give them a lovely sparkly finish.
The design paper is My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus.
I made the sentiment on the computer.
I have tried to use the distress inks around the edges,
but I think I need more practice with them.
Ignore the colour on this photo, it's a bit weird,
but it does give you an idea of how the glimmer mist sparkles.
