I'm looking out of the window this Bank Holiday Monday and what a surprise! .. it's tipping down with rain! Luckily I didn't have any plans for trips or outings ... I hope those of you who do will still manage to enjoy yourselves today despite the abysmal weather.
The prevailing climate made me start thinking about the numerous "April Showers" challenges that are out there at the moment - I think today is the perfect day to get stuck in to them lol! I always struggle with these as I somehow feel strange putting images of eg. umbrellas onto birthday cards; but then I had a bit of a brainwave based on another card I made quite a long time ago.
This is really a very simple card, but I'm quite pleased with it :-) Unfortunately it's so dull that it was difficult to get a decent picture, but i hope you get the general idea!
Stamp: "Me To You";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; rain created with lines of glamour dust;
Extras: computer-generated sentiment; gems from my stash.
