April Showers

Today is a great day!  It's raining so a great excuse to craft ;) And I finally got my Tim Holtz distress markers!!!!  I was really excited about using them... so forget about the idea of emptying the wardrobe and changing the clothes... it's cold today anyway... so why put the summer clothes out right?!?  Who's with me on that... lol any excuse to craft instead!

So here's my card for this afternoon:
And of course my picture is crooked... :(  But I don't want to take the time to take another one because that will be cutting down craft time!  The beautiful digi image is April Showers from Paper cupcake.  I used my distress markers to color the dress and the umbrella.  I added liquid pearl for the bow and some glossy accent for the raindrop.  The doily is made with a quick cuts die.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
  1. Theres magic in the air - I cased Shirley's card they were all beautiful and the choice was hard...
  2. Crafty catz weekly challenge - Stripes or checks
  3. Clearly i stamp -Spring

  7. Hippity with ippity - rain or showers
  8. The hybrid chick - spring
  9. Crafty sentiments - use a digi (I was sure I had entered... but I guess not)
I'm off to make another one ;)
