Weekly Challenge #16 - April Showers

April is more than half over (can you believe how fast time is flying?), and we can't get to the May flowers without the April showers, so that's this week's challenge - April Showers

Our team is showcasing the Pink Paislee "Hello Sunshine" collection.  There are such cute umbrellas, raindrops, and flowers in this collection!  They even have a stamp set and a coordinating die.
      
      
I tried a number of colors for my card base.  The lighter colors that matched the patterned papers made the card look too washed out.  The deep, bright blue made things really pop!   The "be the rainbow" focal image is actually one of the pocket cards just cut a little bit to square off the corners.  Also included are ephemera, puffy heart stickers, and the umbrella die (which I cut twice -- once for the yellow handle & tip, and again for the flower canopy).

        
Happy (Spring) Stamping!
