Showers and Flowers

Hi All, happy Friday!

Hope you've had a good week! This weekend is suppose to be really nice weather wise so I'm trying to get all the household chores and errands done today, so we can have fun the rest of the weekend! Hope you have a great weekend too!

We have a new challenge for you on Stamp Something today and this one is all about April Showers and Flowers! We want to see you create something with either showers or flowers or both. You may use images or embellishments or designer papers that will fit with this theme. Post your creation on your blog and then leave us a direct link to your work on the Stamp Something post. We have some great blog candy this week and a new sponsor! Head on over and check things out, don't forget to check out the Something with Showers and Flowers design team samples too!

Here's the card I made for this challenge! I used Rainy Day Emma from Whimsy Stamps as the main image and paired her with some raindrop images and a sentiment from our sponsor Penguin Pants.

The images was colored with Copics and the umbrella was paper pieced with Parisian Breeze DSP from SU!. I also used this DSP on some of the layers. The accents are felt flowers in pink, baja, and chocolate along with chocolate brad centers, and finally some pink striped grosgrain ribbon. All of these embellishments are from SU!.

Thanks for popping over today! Have a great Friday. Happy stamping!! :)
