April Showers, Bring May Flowers!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Well the sun has been shining but we seem to have a lot of gusty winds, which makes it a bit unpleasant outside, so therefore I abondend the gardening this afternoon and ended up making a card instead.

So the new sketchie for this week has been posted by the lovely Rosie on the CMLI forum and she has a theme Rain & Showers, which there is quite a few challenges for this week.

Well hopefully we will have lovely flowers in May after all the rain we've been having.

So I used a Magnolia Tilda stamps which I had for many months and not even used yet, so I thought this will be the ideal oppurtunity get her inked up. I coloured my image using promarkers. The papers is from a Cardmaking & papercraft magazine. I can't remember from where I got the digi sentiment. The big yellow flower was hand made using some punches. The background for the sentiment was embossed using the Swiss dots folder and my cuttlebug. Everything else is just from my stash.

So I really hope you all like it and this happy cheery card, makes you all feel a bit brighter.
