4/16/2020 - Double D & CAS Sketches - No Matter The Weather

Happy Thursday - a gorgeous day here in the Midwest with high 40's, but I just heard on NPR that it will rain later tonight and also winter advisory until 10am tomorrow! That's just so crazy, I can't wait for my spring to come. Today's card is using 2 challenges - Double D for Showers / Flowers, and CAS Sketches. When I saw the DD challenge, I knew right away I want to use Under My Umbrella stamp set and the beautiful Bird Ballard DSP for the floral image. The coloring on the rain boots and umbrella is done by SU Markers' and Stampin' Blends. I am actually really surprised how well the umbrella came out with the shades - I LOVE IT. I added a very cute sentiment and finished off my card. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the day, wherever you may be!

  3. You've done a super job combining the two challenges! I'm glad you made CAS Colours & Sketches one of them, and I hope you'll join us again soon for another challenge!
    I live in a mountain valley in Virginia and while we haven't had much snow all winter, the higher elevations around us had 3 to 4 inches of snow a few days ago. I love snow, but I prefer it in December and January! I'm ready for warmer weather now, too.

  4. What a lovely spring time card! Just perfect for our challenge. Thanks for linking up to the Double D "Showers & Flowers" challenge. Best of luck to you!

  5. So fresh and beautiful card!! It reminds me a time with my nieces when it was raining becuause she likes to walking under the rain. :) Thank you for playing along with CC&S challenge.

  6. Love your card! 2 birds one very effective stone, great job combining the 2 challenges. The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper and the Under My Umbrella stamp set play really well together. I absolutely adore the rain boots in the March Paper Pumpkin Kit, I love using that kit in Tandem with the Under My Umbrella stamp set. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CC&S
