April Showers

Morning everyone and welcome to a new challenge over at An Oldie But A Goodie.  This time it's Claire's turn to set our theme, and she's gone with

April Showers

(& there have been a few of these over the last few days!)

The prize this time has been put together by Francesca our DT co-ordinator, so hop over to the main blog for more details there.

As well as following our theme, please remember to include an item older than 6 months on your card.


For my card, I used an image from The Paper Shelter called Gothic & Modern .  I know I may be stretching the April Showers theme a bit here, but she's a new stamp & I just so wanted to use her so as she had a brolly I thought she'd be ok!  My oldies here are the buttons and ribbons, and come to think of it, that wreath die must not be older than 6 months.  Papers are MME and colouring by Promarker.

So that's my take on April showers, now it's your turn! For more inspiration head back to the main blog to see the rest of the DT's creations.
