Scattered Showers...

It's officially Spring, but it's still winter over here in the UK. It's been raining on and off all week and then today I opened the curtains to a snow shower! Snow in March!!! Can't believe how cold it is as well. Where's the Spring sunshine gone?!

With the dreary weather in mind, I just had to pull out my Scattered Showers stamp set and dies for this card. This one is for ColourQ's Challenge #181 to use the colours below and for A Passion for Papertrey's Negative Die Cuts Challenge. I was going to die cut my umbrella into the raindrops but as two umbrellas on one one die, it wouldn't work, so instead I cut out a Fillable Frames #9 die and then the frame from Framed Out #3 and stamped the sentiment on the mount underneath instead.


And here's my card.



Recipe:

Stamps: Scattered Showers, Scattered Showers Additions, Framed Out #3 all from PTI

Papers: Brilliant Blue (Retired), Brocade Blue(Retired), Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Brilliant Blue (Retired), Brocade Blue(Retired), Daffodil Delight, Basic Black all from SU

Accessories: Scattered Showers Dies, Fillable Frames #5 Die, Framed Out #3 Die all from PTI, Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon both from SU

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by.
