Little Red Wagon Challenge #337 ~ April Showers

Hello there.  Yep, it's that time again....time for a new weekly challenge at Little Red Wagon. This week our hostess is Brenda and her theme is APRIL SHOWERS.  She wants to see projects that focus on rain or water.

Here in Ontario we haven't had many April's been April snow.  Wishing for warmer weather soon but I digress. My card features a stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called Look for Rainbows.  Patterned paper is Doodlebug Springtime and must have been one of my favourite paper pads as every single bit of it is almost used up.  Your Next Stamp Fishtail Die Set, Spellbinders Nestabilities Petite Scalloped Circles and Tiny bubbles Embossing folder were also used.  Embellishments were from my stash.  I am sending this card to a special niece of mine and really liked the finished product.
