Double D Challenge - April Showers

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and today's theme is:
 
 APRIL SHOWERS
(Anything Water Related)

 
and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .
 

 
 Looking at the mood board and through my stash, there were so many different directions I could have gone but I spotted a new stamp/die set I had in my (NBUS) basket so grabbed it and here's what I ended up with.  

Now mind you, the umbrella is from a Fun Stampers Journey 'Flower Shower set' which is actually designed as a wedding set purchased at Spellbinders awhile back, but worked perfectly for what I had in mind for today's card.
 
 Flower Shower Stamp Set
 
 The background 'rain' was created using a very OLD stamp by CC Rubber Stamps and the sentiment die is by Sue Wilson called 'Rain or Shine' (#CED23017)

 
 

 I used dimensional tape to pop up the umbrella and then added a couple acrylic dots by Cloud 9.
 
So be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!  Here's the prize offered for this challenge . . .

Hope to see you at Double D!

  9. Very eye-catching card! I love that you went with fussy-cutting the stamped umbrella instead of just using the die you already had. Are you like me, in that you have so much stuff you feel compelled to try to use everything at least once? LOL it's a full-time career! heehee xoxo
