April Showers.......





April Showers bring May Flowers.
I've followed a fab sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for this card. It's an 8 x 8" card for a change, embossed with dots. The image of the boy and girl is from Digital Two For Tuesday, and the flower is a stamp, both coloured with promarkers. The swirl stamps are Heidi Grace, buttons HOTP, ribbon is Anna Griffin and dp is MME.

This card was made for these challenges:

The ABC Challenge - Q is for quotation
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 16 - It's all in the technique - (colouring with my promarkers)
S2G Twisted Thursday #49 - Spring with buttons
Paper Garden Projects Birthday Challenge 4 - Embossing - (sentiment is heat embossed plus dots are dry embossed)
Colour Create Challenge 41 - Your choice of pastels plus optional extra of Spring
