April Showers & May Flowers!

Woo Hoo it's Sunday & that means it's time for another new challenge at
The Crafty Pad!
This week it's once again "The A Team's" chance to WoW you
with their wonderful creations!
The theme for this weeks challenge gives you the option of
#168 April Showers Bring May Flowers and/or  Sketch
We want to see those flowers in bloom on your papers,
your images or as embellishments on your creations!
Here's my card


The lovely Leesa gave us this great sketch to work with.


I rotated it a quarter turn & changed the shapes a little!
I used an A5 card blank as my base.
The design papers I have used are from one of the brand new 
digital paper sets at The Crafty Pad Designs!


The image I have used is Penny Pamper!
She's just finished having her "April shower"! Lol
As you can see there are flowers on her shower cap, 
towel & the bathroom rug!
The pattern on the base layer of design paper resembles flowers &
the matt of the script design paper's wording is about flowers in full bloom
I've added some flowers that I made using Papermania paper flowers 
which I scrunched up, inked & then layered using brads as centres.

The image was printed onto some smooth card,
coloured using a mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers, 
using Spring Colours to match with the papers
& rounded the corners with a punch 
The sentiment was created on my PC using a font called LMS Hippy Chick
which you can download for free from here, There are little
flowers on the letters if you look closely!
I also added some sheer ribbon, with a double bow, a heart shaped pearl stick pin 
& some Green Papermania Mosaic gems to further embellish my card!
I hope you like it!
Now it's time to pop on over to  The Crafty Pad to check out the 
fabulous work by the ladies of Team A!
Don't forget we also have the Anything Goes With A Crafty Pad Image
challenge which runs all month! 
You can enter both challenges with the same project
if it fits the current theme & you've used a Crafty Pad image!

  16. Marvelous card, Dawn! I love how you did the sentiment. This makes me want to go soak in a bubble bath and pamper myself a bit. Love all the yellow, a color I don't use much until I see something like this to inspire me. Wonderful!
