April Showers bring May Flowers

Evening Everyone,
Have you had a good weekend? Isn't it scary to see where this year is disappearing to.
I had all these grand plans to keep on top of everything, and that certainly hasn't happened.
One of the plans that has bitten the dust is to make sure that I have my DT work done in plenty of time. Unfortunately life takes over and with the best of intentions it just doesn't happen.
One such card was this one which was supposed to have been ready last weekend for the challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.
Tracey has chosen the theme 'April Showers bring May Flowers', and would like to see something rain related  with at least two flowers.
I managed to find a lovely Gorguss Girls decoupage sheet, complete with background paper, among my stash. Who knew that I had that lol.
I cut the image out using a nestie to which I added some Faux Stitching.
The fence is a DooHickey die, and the umbrella is a new Clarity stamp which I also used on the background paper stamping it with Milled Lavender Distress Ink.
The flowers are also Nestabilities dies and the sentiment is from Hobby Art.
I added a little Glossy Accents to the puddle and the rain drops.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out, I just wish I had got it made in time for the challenge.
There is still time to enter so why not pop over and check it out HERE.
I would also like to enter it into the challenge at Wags and Whiskers where they are looking for Girly Birthdays, and Forever Friends Monthly Challenge where Anything Goes.
The kids are looking forward to another day off tomorrow. I on the other hand will be at work as normal. It is bound to be busy as well, it always is on a Bank Holiday.
Have a good one.
Hugs Kimx
