April Showers

Hi All,
Did you watch the Royal Wedding today? OMG, what a fabulous wedding. Kate and William looked so stunning. I loved her gown because it wasn't "over-the-top." Did you see that part where William put the ring on Kate's finger. Ohhh, for a moment I thought the ring was too small. He must've been panicking inside. :-) And what kind of cars did they ride in....sure don't see any of those in Hilo. LOL.

I've been wanting to make a card using my "rain" paper and thought April would be the perfect month for it....though tomorrow is the last day. So I had to whip this one up FAST. I don't have an umbrella die so I created my own using the circle die placing it over part of the paper, then using my scallop punch for the rim. The puddles of water is just white paper I cut out in different shapes, then colored it with a light shade of blue (Copic), and put a couple of Stickle lines to give it a shimmer. I like to use my "doggie" stamp wherever I can because it reminds me of our crazy pooch, Buddy.
