April showers



   I have several birthdays coming up next month, so I'm starting to make the cards now. I embossed the pink core'dinations cardstock using the Die'sire butterfly swirl corner embossalicious folder. I then sanded it and applied glitter to the embossed design. This was then matted and layered onto blue core'dinations cardstock and white card.
   The stamped image is from Joanna Sheen's spring set of  House Mouse Designs stamps. I coloured it using Promarkers, applied glossy accents to the raindrops and then dusted the background with distress ink. After fixing it to the card I attached strips of green peel offs to the edges of the image.
   To finish the card I added square gems and a peel off sentiment.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Send A Smile 4 Kids - pastel colours
   Eureka Stamps - rainshowers and rainbows
   QKR Stampede - anything goes
   The Crazy Challenge - flower frenzy
