Dance In The Rain


Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Our challenge hostess for April, Joanne Grzelak finishes off the month with another fun challenge.

Our challenge this week is …. Rain showers - It is said that ‘April showers bring May flowers”, so let’s show both. Have flowers and rain be a part of your card/project in some way. Remember -- the sentiment counts too.

For my card this week I created an accordion card using the Oval Accordion Card set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs. Earlier this year I purchased this cute stamp from CC Designs … which I just had to use for todays challenge.

On the right hand side panel with the sentiment I added some flowers which are die cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs Bunch of Flowers 2 die, Curvy Leaves die and Pink Shimmer Sheetz.


Here is my card again, this time from the front when it is closed. As you can see I added more flowers to two of the corners using the Bunch of Flowers 2 die, Curvy Leaves die and Pink Shimmer Sheetz.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

    Frances, thanks to you I have been ordering from CC Designs. So many sweet images and I sure hope I can use them as well as you do. This is another fabulous example I have to live up to!
    Such a fun card.
