April Showers

Hello there - first day back at work and I've survived!
Well almost ... IT issues! Grrrr! 

Anyway I've a card to share that I made yesterday but my photographer 
had gone AWOL so it's only just ready for posting!!! 

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: April Showers - Umbrella die
and Say It In Style sentiments
Simon Says Stamp: Raindrops Stencil
Winnie & Walter: Big Bang Confetti stamps - to add a bit of detail to the brollies
Distress Inks: Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Picked Raspberry & Wild Honey

I'd like to enter this at the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS - Code word: Showers

CAS Colours & Sketches - I veered a little from the sketch
but thought I'd fancy my chances! I seem to have got out of 
the habit of entering this one so need to try harder.

Simon Says Stamp: April Showers & Flowers
this is my 3rd entry but this time without the flowers!

  8. How lovely to see your card pop up at CC&S Sarah. Think the weather may just have indluenced your card and maybe the colours a bit of wishful thinking about Summer to come. Thanks for playing and sharing your beautiful card.
