Challenge #29 - April Showers bring May Flowers

Amber here today with our first challenge of April. It's finally Spring here in North America and we couldn't be more excited! So I've chosen "April Showers bring May Flowers" for our challenge theme. This means you can use raindrops, umbrellas, or flowers on your projects.

Here's what I came up with:
On this first one I used an umbrella and rain with one of my favorite stamps. I wanted the couple to be black and white with the umbrella just popping with color.
  And then I had to make a simple flower card too!
Let's check out what the rest of the design team came up with:

Charity made a great photo frame with rainboots and a matching 3-d umbrella.

Erica used the rock and roll technique to get this beautiful ombre look on her flowers.

Judy watercolored her stamp image for this gorgeous card. Did you notice we used the same stamp? Love it!
Kristy made this colorful card using flowers, raindrops AND umbrellas. I love her gem raindrops.
Kyla has this super cute paper-pieced umbrella and fun glittery rain.

Sheryl  has a fun rainboot card to share with us with more glittery rain. This makes me wish I had a fun pair of rainboots to wear and splash around with the kids. Or by myself!

 And from our April guest designers:
Jessica has this gorgeously romantic and bold card to share with us today!
Deborah has the only layout of the bunch today. I love her colorful raindrops and the variety of flowers on this!

Get creating! You have until April 13th to play along with this challenge.

Oh, one more thing....
The winner of Challenge #28 using the photo inspiration is lucky #3
 Please send us an email with your info and we will get that prize mailed out to you!
