April Showers....

.... Bring May flowers. Today is the 1st day of our spring break and its chilly and damp outside. I can only hope our flowers are wonderful when Spring actually comes to stay. I'm up this morning to create for some of my challenges. I like it when all the powers that be align to enable me to create one card for more than one challenge. It's also fun because it makes me think a little harder, I like trying to make it all fit. I created my card based on Mojo Monday Sketch 392.

I was able to work Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which was "A is for ....." using  "A" to show something that inspires spring. And finally Mark's Finest Paper asked us to create a card using spring colors. And the color challenge over at My Favorite Things. Such a fun day!
Here's the card I created:

The pattern paper is from the 6x6 pad from Crate Paper "Farmhouse" - love the papers BTW. I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Memento Ink. I also used my circle and scallop dies and eggshell seam binding for the bow. The solid color paper is out of my scrap basket. The stamped image is an old Stampin Up image from the Scene in a Garden set. I really like the papers in this card. I used the rain boots for my "A" is for - April Showers. The colors are definitely from a spring pallet and I used the Mojo Monday sketch. Whoot Whoot! Off to play with the last challenge card for today, from Verve, another card sketch, my fav!  TFSB!
