WW April Showers Challenge



Hello everyone! Here is my DT project for Whimsical Wednesday's challenge this week. The theme of this weeks challenge is April Showers Bring May Flowers. You are to use one of the following elements in your project: umbrella, rain boots, rain drops, or flowers.

My entire card was done with Create A Critter, one of my all time favorite carts! I cut the chick at 3 inches and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen face stamp. The feet were actually cut from the duck and I glued them over the original feet. The umbrella was also cut at 3 inches. The pond was cut at 1.5 inches and the flowers and grass were cut at 2 inches and .75 inches. I highlighted all of the cuts with my black and white pens and pop dotted the umbrella and grass. I printed the sentiment off my computer, made a tag and tied it to the ribbon on top of the card. To finish I added Glossy Accents to the pond water and droplets to the umbrella and background so it looks like rain drops. I hope you all enjoyed seeing my card and I can't wait to see what you will create! Have fun!

I am also going to enter this into Fantabulous Cricuts Spring Fling Cricut Crawl.
