Showers and Flowers Challenge

I love the month of April...
it means that soon the birds will be singing,
the flowers will be popping up 
and just that nice clean, 
fresh air smell of Springtime.

That's what our challenge is about at 
Double D...
Showers and Flowers.

We have this beautiful mood board to just
get you inspired...lots to choose from!

I have a fondness for the color yellow,
not only do I love it, 
but it was my Mother's favorite color too
and I found myself making her many yellow cards over the years...
I sure miss that!

I picked up the yellow and white polka dot ribbon 
from the upper left corner
for my background.
Can you believe it is the back of the floral paper I used for the rain boots?

Speaking of the rain boots, I saw a card made with them at least a year ago
and searched for them and found them at Paper Smooches.
I just HAD to have the includes the little rain drops too...
I added diamond Stickles to mine.

The pretty white doily is from The Scrapping Cottage (cottage cutz)
I wait for their 60 to 80% off sales and load up...
it's a little bit embarrassing how many of their dies I have.

The tiny flowers is an older die from Cheery Lynn Designs,
I am not sure if they even make dies anymore?
The tiny leaves are Impression Obsession, 
they sure come in handy here and there.

The banner and sentiment are Lawn Fawn Wavy Banners and sentiments.

So be sure to head on over to Double D and see all the FABULOUS
designs from the Design is always amazing.
Join in with us as we always have a fun prize to give away!!

Entering the following challenges:
Paper Smooches .... Happy

Those boots with flowers are so pretty, and, ohhhhh, the yellow polka dots and flowery paper... this is one of those sheets I have a hard time deciding which side to use so end up not using it at all, sheesh.
