Hi, everyone! Was on vacation this past week, so I have some catching up to do! I've combined quite a few challenges from the past week:
Inspiration Challenge: I chose the top postage stamp from this photo because of the gorgeous colors;
Technique Lover's 'Line Up' Challenge: doodle by hand or draw lines around your image;
Clean and Simple 'April Showers' Challenge: baby or bridal showers, rain showers, etc.;
Color Challenge of Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, and Sahara Sand;
Featured Stamper Challenge: belated congrats to Mary Johnson aka maryj68....I chose this beautiful card from her gallery to recreate.
I will also submit this to the Shining the Light 'April Showers Inspiration' Challenge over at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog.
Since I have no Wild Wasabi, I started off with some Prima papers from my stash which had both green and pink for the color challenge, for the background and the sections of the umbrella. The sentiment is from 'Shower of Blessings'. The umbrella and (lots of) pink hearts were cut out with the ODBD Custom Umbrellas Dies, the pink borders were cut out with the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies. The edges were sponged with Sahara Sand, then hand-doodled. Lining up the tiny pink hearts took a little while, and though they are a bit crooked, I just had to follow the theme from Mary's card.
Thanks so much for looking! Have a very blessed day!

Angie, your soft, delicate colors and the doodling on the edges, and on the umbrella panels, make this a delightful shower card! Love the borders you chose to make this so feminine!
