Spring Rain

Spring is really beginning to show itself even though the temperatures have dropped back down toward freezing.  I’m crossing my fingers that the beauty that is emerging around us won’t get bitten by Jack Frost before steady warmth arrives!

This month over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog, we’re to make spring cards using pastel colors.  Our sponsor this month is Meljen’s Designs, an online shop with a ton of adorable, heart warming images!  The prize this month is four (non-colored) digital images from the store!

For my card this week, I chose to use this little umbrella, called Heart Strings Parasol.

I used some decorative paper from my retired Stampin Up! stash and some coordinating cardstock.  The cloud is actually the top of the cupcake from the Stampin Up! cupcake punch!  (I love it when things can be used for more than what they were originally intended!)  The little pink dots are tiny pink gemstones, but the photo doesn’t show them very clearly, unfortunately.

**I am also entering this card in the I {Heart} 2 Stamp April Sketch challenge.

    It was chilly here this morning too, but spring has for sure sprung down here. Perfect card for spring, and April showers…next…May flowers. 🙂

    Oh so cute! Love the image and sentiment and the little cloud is so perfect on here.
    Great card.

    Darling. Good coloring too! I like the little rain drops. April Showers bring May flowers – it's just around the corner.

    Another beautiful sketch, and cheerful colors! Love anything with chevron stripes! Just bought a dress and a scarf (they don't go together!) with chevron strips on them! Steppin' out!
