HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #192 ~ "APRIL SHOWERS"

Hello and welcome to another House Mouse Monday! We have a new challenge starting today over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and the theme is April Showers.

(click on photo for larger view)

For my card, I used the "Rain Flower" stamp by Stampendous and a sentiment from Stampin' Up! that I inked up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. (Monica Mouse ~ YR0000, YR00, R11, C1, C3, C5; Raindrops ~ BG000, B12; Flower ~ G12, G24, G46, RV02, RV14, RV25)

It's very hard to see here, but I also added Glossy Accents to the raindrops after I colored them. The decorative papers are from the DCWV Touch of Foil collection and I cut out my layers with MFT Dienamics Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies. The brad in the center of the flowers is from Basic Grey, the flowers are from my stash, and the twine is from American Crafts.

Now on to the challenge information.

Oh Snoopy, this card is just so darling. Your coloring is so pretty and I really like the pink flower tied in with the zinnia in the stamp. The brad in the center of the flower really adds that extra bit of thought that puts this card right over the top.
