April Showers

I'm joining the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp where this week's theme is
April Showers and/or Spring Flowers. Since they're showcasing Memory Box products,
I pulled out the Memory Box umbrella die for my card.


I masked off a portion of the card with Post It Tape and ink distressed with 
two colors of Distress inks and spattered it with water. Three umbrellas were die cut
from watercolor cardstock and ink distressed, then adhered to the panel.

 
I added some "raindrops" with Glossy Accents and finished off the card
with my favorite Paper Smooches sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
