Hello everyone, it's cold here in southwestern Virginia and I see we got a little snow overnight.  Don't know about you but I'm ready for some warmer weather, maybe some April showers and May flowers.....
Today I am bringing you a new card where it looks like April showers, hope you enjoy.

Instructions: Prepare your easel card making it 6 x 5 1/4" with white cardstock. Using the Singing in the Rain paper, chose your paper for the top and inside. I chose one with the little girl in it and cut it 1/4 inch smaller. Use the Singing in the Rain die to cut her out, place D-Dots on her back and then adhere to the card. Stamp the Umbrella on white with Bamboo Leaves, color with Prussian Blue, cut out with the matching die and add D-dots to the back, adhere to card.
Use the remainder of that sheet and cover the inside making it 1/4 inch smaller. Use the Sweetheart Border die and cut a piece of white out and place at the bottom, top with a small piece of matching paper. Use the other part of the border die and run it through your machine, save the tiny hearts and adhere to the top of the small piece as shown. Add D-dots that you cut in half to the back and adhere to the card.
Stamp the sentiment on white with the blue ink, cut out with the oval die, add D-dots and adhere to card. To finish add Crystal Clear to the Umbrella, and glitter to the wings, and water spots using dries clear glue.

What a sweet card. Love that little angel with her jeweled umbrella - a girl needs a bit of bling to cheer her up, especially on a rainy day.
