April Showers Bring May Flowers

So glad you decided to stop by on this fine Monday!! We have a new challenge for you over at Exploring Cricut. Diane has challenged us to make a project including a flower celebrating Spring! For my project I made a 6x6 card and used the April Showers cartridge. I cut the clous that can be found at the #6 spot on the overlay at 105inches, the umbrella that is at the #9 & 19 spot at 2.75 inches and the flowers that are at the #22 & 32 spots on the overlay at 1.25 inches. The grass is a Fiskars punch. I embossed the clouds using the QuicKutz Embossing Folder Swirls. I made two layers of grass, popping up the top layer. I put some faux half pearls in the center of the flowers. On the umbrella, I did a little doodling and added some White Opal Liquid Pearls to the tips of the umbrella and the handle. The 'raindrops' are Skittlz from Pez-A-Doodle Designs. I put the sentiment on the inside. It is from the 'Think Spring' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Now it's your turn. Head on over to Exploring Cricut and check out what my DT Sisters have made for some inspiration. Awesomeness for sure! Then head to your crafty space and create a new project, using a Cricut cut flower and following our theme of 'April Showers Bring May Flowers'. You have until 10pm, EST, Saturday, April 27th to link you project. Looking forward to seeing what you create! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
