Rain or Shine

The current Cuttlebug Mania challenge is 'April Showers' and they want to see rain on your card.  This cute Dovecraft stamp is the nearest I can find with rain and the paper looks like it's raining flowers!  I'm also entering the Die Cut Divas April challenge which is to make a project associated with April ('Rain or Shine' is definitely April weather) and Penny's Paper Crafty 'Anything Goes'  challenge.   The card and papers are from my snippets drawer to so I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 4" x 4" white silk
Stamp: Dovecraft Smirk 'Rain or Shine'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Large and Lacy Squares
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Memento Paris Dusk
Colouring: Promarkers
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Dark blue matt and white silk card, Jennifer Ellory Floral Papers (magazine freebie)

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto dark blue card and attached it to the card front.  The image was stamped onto white card and coloured with Promarkers.  I die cut and embossed the image before attaching it to a die cut and embossed lacy square.  To finish I highlighted the coloured areas with a Wink of Stella.
