Bus stop, wet day....
Recently one of my cards was top pick at the C.R.A.F.T. challenge, and they asked me to do a guest DT stint for this week's challenge. The theme is Easter/spring, and I chose to make a spring showers card. (That's quite appropriate considering our weather.)
My card features a sweet image from The Paper Shelter, which I colored in pencils, adding some stamped shrubbery on the side. The image is die-cut with a Spellbinders pierced oval. The clouds are cut with a die from Whimsy Stamps called Stitched Clouds.
The papers are all snippets -- the three patterned pieces are from a really old stack. The scalloped strip in the middle was cut from a snippet that was only an inch wide (why do I keep some of these things?) The clouds were cut from bits of white.
If you're in the mood to do an Easter/spring card, hop on over to C.R.A.F.T. #460. You could win a prize from Eureka Stamps.
My card is for these challenges:
