Papertake Weekly - April Showers!

Hey everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and ths week it's all about April Showers! So let's see anything about water ie raindrops, the sea, however you interpret it. We are sponsored by Whiff of Joy. so be sure to enter for a chance to wim an awesome prize! Here's what I came up with for you

I used an adorable image from Peggy Loves Vintage from her New Baby Volume 2 cd. I love using her images! I was running a little behind in getting a card done for this today, so I was able to print this out, mat it on some cardstock, and finish this card up in no time at all!


Isn't this image so precious??!!  The colors didn't translate very well into digital form. The papers I used are Nitwit Collections matted with Bazzill cardstock and machine stitched. I added some lace and ribbon from my stash, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So that's it for me today! Please be sure to check out Peggy's images, she has something for everyone! If you're not following her blog, you might want to consider it. She is VERY generous in giving away free vintage images!   Also please pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out all my teamies gorgeous creations, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon!
hugs, Sharon
