April Showers

So many inspirations so less time! I wish day to have more than 24 hours.This weekend I want to spend little bit more time with you. I have four cards to share.
 Miri from Daring Cardmakers has her first time to set up challenge for us. She's chosen really fantastic and weather actual topic for us :

April showers  

'It seems that the snowy season is finally over as we already have had lots of rain this week. 
So, this week I dare you to use raindrops, puddles, umbrellas, rainbows … on your cards.'

Here is my card :

I think this is my first card with umbrella ever made!
Funny enough I'm living in London :0)

I enjoyed to play with ribbons. Went for the spring colours yellow and pink. Embellished with nice white button.


I cut out my umbrella from fabulous Lilybee Persnickety patterned paper. Inked around the edges and matt with pink cardstock. Used white gel pen to add a bit of 3D dimension for handle and finished with blue gem stones as a rain drops!

Why not to give my card some action so I printed sentiment and affixed it on the little floating cloud.

April showers bring May flowers!

Used Material :

Kraft, white and pink cardstock
Lilybee Design Persnickety 6x6 Tiny Tablet
Echo Park Spring time
Spellbinder Nestabillities Classic squares large
PC and printer for sentiment
Mounting pads
Inks and thread


  1. I love your card Zuz, it's so cheerful, and I really like the way the cloud goes off the edge.

  2. I must have missed your card, Zuzana! It's very cute. I love the huge bow and the bright, cheerful colours you used.
    ... and I like your "rainy" sentiment as well!
