Clear skies with few scattered clouds

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!
Today is The Digi Shack's weekly challenge, I cannot believe it's been a week since I showed my shower curtain guy. haha!
So this week's challenge is - CLOUDS! Use clouds anyway you want to on a card, preferably (but not required) with a TDS image from the shop. I took over the challenges and warned you that they would be on the kooky side now. lol!
This is what I came up with using the sweet mailbox image:

Please note that this card is so hard to photograph as I used clear cardstock that I purchased from GAS. Isn't it pretty neat? I thought it would be hard to work turns out that it's just hard to take a picture of and keep clean. haha!
My clouds are floating freely behind the mailbox, I've had this image colored for quite some time now and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. It's perfect for an outdoor card. :D
Here is a closer look at the mailbox:

Do you all remember those brass plates from SU that we just had to have? haha! Well I admit I had to dust this alphabet set off but it came in handy for etching. This image is plain which gives you so many opportunities to customize, I embossed MAIL on to the side.
There's a little flower peeking from out behind the mailbox that is enjoying all the cloud coverage:

So let me see what you all have in your cloudy vision! LOL! Upload your card HERE into TDS' blog and leave a comment so the Maui Wowies can come and visit you. Upload it into any gallery using the keyword TDSC014, and have a wonderful day everyone!
*Love and Aloha*
