Double D - April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hello Everyone!
Today begins a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog!

For the next couple of weeks you have the opportunity to create using this fabulous inspiration board and sharing it with us at Double D.  Who knows ... your creation could be chosen among the Top 3 ... Winner ... or even possibly the Prize Winner!

Yep, you get another chance at winning this adorable Spellbinder 'Wellies' die.  
As you see I liked this die so much I just had to have one for myself and that was the basis for MY creation today.  The other dies I've used on my card are:
Poppystamps - Peppini Wreath (#1409)
Impression Obsession - Umbrella (DIE049)
purchased from the Dies R Us Store.

 So here ya go ... this is my inspiration sample:

What a fun time I had 'designing' my Wellies!  LOL!
The colors are not as 'true' as I had hoped (really need to read that camera book) ... what looks red is actually hot pink and what looks teal blue and actually more of an aqua.  Oh well ... at least the design is as it appears!  LOL  I've even added a touch of sparkle on my wellies with a touch of green Stickles.

The Peppini wreath has been laying on my work table for weeks now so when I started to create my card, my thought went to how I could incorporate it into my design.  Of course my flower is another snippet from the zillion die cut flowers I have in a bag ... just needed to give it a touch of color.  Oh and my acrylic rain drops have been in my stash for literately YEARS!!

 Challenges to share in:

Oh, my whatever the colors are true or not - they are gorgeous looking from my pc. I love the combination of red and teal or pink and teal!! Your design is just picture perfect and I love those boots - I would wear them and go into the biggest puddles I could find!! Hugs

Well, I just love me some umbrellas and rain boots, and whatever the color, this is fabulous! Love how you used the wreath and created the design around it. The raindrops are perfect! Now I wish I had some clear ones, but I forget I have the colored ones, even, so guess I should use what I have. Great challenge and a super fun card, Darlene!
