When it rains it pours!

April Showers Graphic copy

I love that saying :) And I love this set! The images are so pretty and work for a variety of occasions.

I used the boots and stamped them on a scrap of green distressed patterned paper and used Copic markers in various shades of green to color in the leaf design on them. I cut them out and adhered them over the stamped original on white card stock. I stamped the umbrella on a scrap of turquoise paper and cut it out and popped it up over the sentiment. The fun raindrop paper is double sided from the Jack and Jill line by My Minds Eye. The red gingham paper is on the reverse. I ruffled up some aqua ribbon (reminiscent of a puddle, no?) and added a few fun colored buttons to brighten the card.

I hope you enjoyed all of the new sets for April. Now check out the lovely samples from the designers below!
