Last of the April Showers

     Good Friday Morning, friends.  It's time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede.  Our latest theme is "April Showers Bring May Flowers" so let's see something with raindrops, umbrellas, puddles or flowers, gardens, etc.  I used an image and a sentiment from QKR Stampede:  Digi 24296 Chicken Little and Digi 14707 April Showers.

I used the sketch found at the Paper Play Sketches
and colors from Color Throwdown.


     I started by coloring the image with my ProMarkers and then I cut it with a Stitched Scallop die from Memory Box.  The blue background paper was in my stash of large scraps.  I hand cut the two dovetail flag bits, one from CS and the other from dp.  The striped ribbon is some which has been hiding in stash for far too long.
