Under the Weather?

This is my second card of the day. I am going to give it to my friend who has bad Gout and Arthritis in her foot, and she is hobbling about at the moment on my borrowed crutches.

When I saw the "Singing in the Rain" theme at Less Is More, I thought of the iconic dance scene where Gene Kelly dances around a lamppost, and so I went straight for my lamppost stamp. After stamping it I coloured it with my AP and markers, fussy cut it out and placed it on a base card. The dots and drops were stamped  
in the opposing corner with random teardrop gems added. To give the design some colour and texture, I stamped the small flowers and leaves and grouped them at the base of the lamppost. I know it's corny, but the only sentiment that I could think of was "Feel better soon", as the rain drops made me think of being "Under the weather".

I will be entering these challenges :
