April Showers

Morning!! I have the great honor of hosting the challenge this week at Bitten By The Bug 2. The theme that I have chosen is 'April Showers'. Now let me explain. Make a card, layout or papercraft using a cricut cut for 'Rain, Baby, Wedding, etc. Shower.'
I decided to use an umbrella and flowers on my card. The umbrella and sun came from the Create A Critter cartridge. The umbrella is on page 31 and cut at 2.75 inches. The sun is on page 52 and cut at 1.25 inches. The flowers are from the Country Life cartridge. They can be found on page 73 and I cut them at 2 inches. The grass is a My Craft Spot Fancy Edges Thin Metal Die. The clouds were punched from 2 different size punches. The bg db is from the Echo Park-Splendid Sunshine 6x6 paper pad. The sentiments is from the 'Good Friends' Cardz TV stamp set. I popped the umbrella, sun and flowers up on one thickness of foam dots. The bling in the center of the flowers are from Recollections.
Head over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the creations that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!! While you are there check out the rules to our challenges in the sidebar. Then head to your crafty space and create a 'April Showers' project. Make sure you use a cricut cut. Then link by Sunday, April 6th. Can't wait to see what you make!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!!! :)
