April Showers

Good morning to you.  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Sentiment and the theme this week is:


so that means any kind of shower: baby, bridal, weather. Here is my card:

I have used Primrose Splish Splash stamp and she is available here - currently on sale! She has been coloured with my Copics and Stickles added.  The papers are Bo Bunny Alora.  I have used my Memory Box Puffy Clouds and Petite Umbrella dies, the umbrella has been paper pieced.  The image has been cut out with Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax and then matted onto cardstock. Here is another view:

There is a fabulous prize this week:

We also have a Guest D.T. call going on so please go over to Crafty Sentiments and check out all the details and the rest of the DT work.
