April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring a little spring scene I made with dies.  I started with the Purrfect Day sentiment from Scribbles Designs, which I printed on white cardstock and then embossed with Darice Cloudy Sky.


I was inspired by Connie's card on facebook here, and I wanted to CASE it.  Here are the dies used: Poppystamps Brighton Border and Curious Cat, Memory Box Petite Umbrella, Lawn Fawn Grassy Border, and Impression Obsession Butterfly Set. I die cut Brighton Border in green, yellow, and pink so I could paper-piece the blooms.  I added pink gems to the butterflies.

I would like to support these fun challenges: Artistic Inspirations AG with Twist of Spring UE; Craft Your Passion AG 2/3; Crafting from the Heart AG 1/3; Creative Corner For a Child 3/3; Creative Fingers AG 3/3; Creative Inspiration AG Option Sketch UE; Die Cut Diva's In the Garden UE;  Die Cuttin Divas Garden 1/3 (SHOWCASE PICK); Dies R Us April Showers Bring May Flowers 1/3;  DL.ART April Linky AG UE 1/day; Dragonfly Dreams/Laurelcraft Let's See Spring UE; Fussy and Fancy Springtime Flowers UE; Hiding in My Craft Room Freestyle 3/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Inspiration Journal Everything Goes UE;  Loves Rubberstamps Add Flowers UE; My Craft Creations April AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Sweet Challenge Spring has Sprung UE: Papertake Weekly Cute and/or Button 1/5; Pile It On April Showers Bring May Flowers UE; Pixie's Snippet Playground (all die cuts made from snippets) 3/3; Poppystamps Spring Fever UE; Scrapbook Blessings Club AG with Pink, Green, and White UE; Scrappy Moms Stamps Spring is in the Air UE; Scribbles Designs Spring has Sprung 2/3 (GOLD STAR HONOURABLE MENTION)Sentimental Sunday Animal Love 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Clean and Simple 1/5; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Stamp and Create April AG 1/wk 3/4; Suzy Bee's Bloomin' AG using Die or Punch UE; The Corrosive Floral Fantasy 3/3; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday AG Twist Clean and Simple 2/2; The Paper Girls April Showers Bring May Flowers 1/3; Wags n Whiskers Flowers 2/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5

This is too cool. Love the embossed panels and the wonderful colors. So delighted you blessed us with your project last week at Word Art Wednesday. We have a new Challenge going on and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 18:6 which says, "In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears." Have a blessed weekend.
