April Showers with The Beary Scrap

Ok, so I know that April Showers really refers to all of the tons of rain that we get each spring, but when I was hunting for a great image to use for this week's theme at The Beary Scrap, I just chuckled when I thought how fun it would be to use a more literal inspiration for my piece.

The cute image is from Karen's Doodles and is colored with my very loved copics. I adore the paper that I used - Pink Paislee's Queen Bee. The colors are just my favorites. Did you notice the really cool die cut that is behind my image? I know you are thinking, what Spellbinders is that? Well, it's not. It is from the Queen Bee Flip Notes. These are really supposed to be journaling spots, but don't they make perfect mats for cards?!! It comes in a pack of 24( 12 different designs) - that coordinate with the whole paper pack. I love this product! I traced around the edge of the note with a copic C-5 pen, just to finish it off a little more. On one of my layers, I added some fancy machine stitching and glued a swarovski crystal in the center of each flower.

Here are my challenges for this card:
Cute Card Thursday - sketch
Belli Challenge - Die Cut Shapes
Quixotic - Make a Splash
Alota - Mother's Day
The Town Scrapper - Girlie
Stamp, Scrap, Doodle - Girlie
Digital Tuesdays - April Showers
