April Showers

Happy Tuesday! I have a card to share with you today, it's for the new challenge over at Use It Tuesday. I love being a part of this design team! It forces me to dig through my evergrowing stash of delicious goodies that I just "had to have" at one point (ha!), and I think that's brilliant! The theme was April Showers Bring May Flowers, and here's what I did;

Just kept it light and fun, super springy! From my stash I used my chocolatey brown spring Dear Lizzy paper which I would really love to buy some more of, if you see it let me know? Also this chipboard cloud by October Afternoon, with which I tried to simulate the "rain effect" down onto the flowers with aqua bakers twine and Stickles...don't know if it actually worked but what the hey, you gotta try new things sometimes, yes?

I do believe this yellow trim by American Crafts has been hanging out in my stash for awhile too, but this pink blossom is new from Prima. I have a new found love for felt flowers, I think they're soo stinkin cute!

The patterned paper with the darling umbrellas is Jillibean Soup. I think it should be a rule that if you make paper with cute umbrellas you have to sell the cute umbrella along with it...

Do you ever feel like that? Me too about every day lol!

So go dig something springy out of that stash of yours! Make sure you play along and grab some inspiration from the awesome design team over there!

Sometimes you see a project and it's fabulous and then you read about a project and it's GENIUS!!! I did not notice your "raindrops" but they are so perfect!! Great job!
