April Showers Brings at least 3 Flowers

Hello there over at it is design team sister Sarah's turn to pick our challenge theme for this next two weeks and it is April Showers brings flowers but you MUST have 3 flowers on your card or project.

For this challenge I made my card before Easter which was in April and yes we did have rain showers as normal over here in the UK.

I used this cute Sherri Baldy image 660 which I coloured in using my Promarkers which I tried to pull in the colours from the papers used. The image has 2 flowers and the backing paper has flowers but also I embossed the strip of green using a ditsy flower folder.
I cut the image out using a Spellbinder die and mounted it on to the larger diecut making sure it sat over the same image on the back ground paper. I lifted the pink out of the background paper on the second slimmer strip. I did round two corners on the green but its hidden under the sentiment.
Now it is your turn to join in but please remember to add at least 3 flowers to your project.


  1. Gorgeous papers! I am always envious of the papers you use! These colors just shout out to me! Wonderful design as well! :)

  2. Well you certainly used more than 3 flowers here and in such clever ways! Hee hee. What a great job you did coordinating the image to the background papers and I see what you did there with that frame matching it perfectly to it's background. Great effect. Love it!

  3. Lovely Sue. :-) Lots of great layering on your card. That's always fun. Thanks for the warm welcome as GD. Hugs!

  4. This is a wonderful card, Sue! What a sweet image!

  5. I love the patchwork look that the layering accomplished! What a beautiful card!
