April Showers

It's another Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #107.  For this challenge you will need to use an umbrella, rain or clouds.  I ended up using all three for my card. 

I started with a white A2 card, lightly sponged clouds on the background using Crystal Blue ink and cloud stencil by Close to My Heart.  Next I added a strip of Crystal Blue gingham pattern paper cut at 1/2" x 4-1/4" to bottom edge and a piece of Crystal Blue cardstock cut at 1/2" .  See photo for placement.

I cut <Image41-s> from my Ultimate Creative Series Sampler cartridge at 4" using the Bonus 6 overlay.  This image is also found in A Child's Year cartridge.

My sentiments were computer generated, cut and mounted onto Carnation Pink cardstock.

My finishing touches were adding floss bow, Flowers with gingham paper centers and brad added to the center of the flowers and at the bottom on the circle.  I also found some adhesive raindrops to add to the background.

Thank you for stopping by today an I hope you have a chance to play along with us at Fantabulous Cricut this week.
