April Showers Bring.......

.......May flowers. I so remember that saying from growing up and I try repeating it every time it has rained this month to remind myself of the beauty that is supposed to follow the headaches rain causes me.

This week's Wednesday Stamp Club challenge was to stamp something rainy, so I pulled out my Stephanie Fizer Rainy Day Friends set and got to work.

I started out by stamping my images in memento tuxedo black on MFT Perfect Panels twice and then colored with prismacolor markers, setting one set of images aside for cutting out later. While layering, I colored the edges of each layer with a Stampin Up! not quite navy marker to make sure the colors didn't blend in together too much and to match the punched border strip I found in my stash of punch scraps.

After adding some MFT baby braddies and dimensionals to the main panel over my punched strip, I got to work adding my cut out girl, frog, and umbrella using different sized dimensionals, pop dots and mini pop dots. Nursery rhyme and vintage colored prima flowers with MFT baby braddies in the center finish my card off.

Now doesn't she look cute?
