Truly Scrumptious #30 - 'April Showers'

>> Wednesday, 14 April 2010

Hello blogging friends. I hope you are well and the Spring sunshine is shining wherever you. We've had gorgeous sunshine for the last week but it's got a little colder and I did sneak the heating back on for an hour this evening.

Today we have a new challenge for you over at Truly Scrumptious. We have a fab sketch designed by Mina and the optional theme is 'April Showers'.

I've used the gorgeous Mimosa from Bildmalarna for my image and she is coloured with distress inks. The papers are MME Bloom & Grow and all the cardstock is Bazzil. I played around with ribbon and paper strips for the narrow vertical layer but none looked right so I added some sparkly raindrops instead. The flower I made myself and layered one Sizzix swirls and added a Prima stud to the centre.

Not for the first time I mistakenly stuck my layered papers and image onto the base card upside down! So at a later date I will add a sentiment and then probably turn this into an easel card.

Our challenge is being sponsored by Pink Gem Designs who are offering a gorgeous stamps as a prize for the winner. The DT girls have done a fabulous job with their samples so please visit our blog and join in the fun.

Tee-hee - sorry Sharon, shouldn't laugh but it's so good to know I'm not the only one that makes cards upside down or back to front!! Easel cards are a brilliant way out of this one lol. Love the gorgeous papers and colours, brilliant colouring and your raindrops look fantastic.
