PGCB - #78 April Showers

Hello, crafty friends! 

I'm super excited to host this week's challenge over on the Paper Girls Challenge Blog. Up here in the Northwest we tend to get our fair share of showers during the Spring, so with May right around the corner, I figured a great theme would be all about rain :) Ya know...April showers bring may flowers, right???

Anyway, here is a little card I put together playing with the theme.

An older paper collection from Piggy Tales called "It's Raining, It's Pouring" was perfect papers for this. I fussy cut a few flowers from the patterned papers and then die cut and stamped the adorable umbrella.

I hope that you all can play along with the challenge. I'd love to see your interpretation of the rain theme! You have until Sunday, May 2nd at midnight (MST) to link your project up to the Paper Girls Challenge Blog.

Happy crafting!
