April Showers Graphic copy

April showers bring May flowers and that's exactly the cheerful flair that is behind this set illustrated by Marcella Hawley. It features whimsical umbrellies and decked out wellies perfect for making a splash in springtime puddles. Add in some perky, fresh picked tulips and rays of sunshine and you have a set that is ready to brighten anyone's day! This set also features 4 fun-filled sentiments. Want to win this set? All you need to do is leave a comment here on this post. The winner will be announced tomorrow over on the Flourishes blog!

On to my creation!

I kept it pretty simple with my creation because I just loved that little bucket of tulips so much! After stamping my tulips on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I colored it up using the Poppy, Cool Neutrals and Spring Greens Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes. I cut it out and then popped up my tulips onto some decorative paper that I had cut out using my Grand Calibur and Spellbinders Classic Circles dies. After, I matted it up on a shape cut thanks to Spellbinders Labels Three. The rest is simple... add some more decorative paper, some twine, a pennant style sentiment, some stitching, some bling and... voila!

The design team whipped up some cheerful creations with this set, so you'll want to jump on over and see....
