Hi everyone, it's challenge time again over at Crafty Cardmakers. Our latest challenge host, Tracey, has chosen the theme 'April Showers bring May Flowers'

Here is my interpretation of the challenge, it is a card I made for my nieces birthday:
I have used a clear stamp from Pink Gem Designs, coloured with ProMarkers. The image was cut out and raised up using silicone glue to add dimension. I've added Stickles to the raindrops to make them sparkle. I made the background paper using a mask and Bundled Sage Distress Ink. The doily and flowers are cut using Marianne dies and the ovals with Spellbinders. A pretty ribbon, bow and soft pink pearls complete this girlie card.
Here is a close up of that lovely image:

I'll be back again soon, Sharon x
