     I don't know how many of you really expect to sunbathe in April but it sure isn't happening in most of the country out my way.  I love this Birdbrain image by From the Heart Stamps and I followed their latest sketch to make the card.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image but instead of die cutting it as I usually do, I used a leftover negative from a Cheery Lynn doily die to make the curved piece.  That's layered on top of the image piece.  I also die cut some clouds (Memory Box) and then added gingham dp.  Those all came from the scrapbox on my table.  The ribbon is white satin from my stash and I made the bow using that same ribbon.
