Showers and Flowers

We've got a fun theme this week for our CAS challenge over at The Outlawz - make a clean and simple card with both flowers and rain. After all, April showers bring May flowers! Last week it was snow showers though!!! This week the sun is out and the window screens are now in...summer is on its way! I'm not so sure I like my card, I think it's the watercolored background that completely throws me. I have to learn to love the randomness and give up the control!! My raindrops are glossy accents. The flowers are die cuts (out of felt) from Taylored Expressions and the sentiment is from Gina K Designs. Take a moment to join us at The Outlawz, it's a warm and welcoming site with daily challenges. Then join us for some CAS fun with our showers and flowers challenge!

Challenges I'd like to submit my card to include:
Addicted to CAS - Rain
Polkadoodles - Floral Frenzy
CRAFT - Clean and Simple
Moving Along With the Times - Spring Flowers
Addicted to Stamps and More - Clean and Simple
Crafty Gals Corner - Dies or Punches
Little Red Wagon - April Showers

*gasp* OH MY GOODNESS.... seriously Linda, the first thing I saw (OK, the bright pink pop of color on the flowers) ... the second thing I saw and am mystified at is how awesome your background is. It totally looks like some very technical and expensive paper made to look like rain! I think sometimes in making things ourselves we get a li'l too close to it. If you leave it for a while and then glance at it, you will be STUNNED at its beauty! :) This is AMAZING! Love it - not just sayin' that. *Ü* Have a sweet Sunday!

I completely understand what you mean about watercolor:) It is an exercise in releasing control for me. I love the way yours looks, beautiful especially with that gorgeous pop of pink. LOVE IT! Thanks for joining us at the Little Red Wagon Challenge this week!
