April Showers

They say that April showers bring May flowers...I certainly hope that is true as we have had plenty of April (and March, February and January!) showers here!  When I saw the My Mind's Eye card sketch challenge's theme this month was, you guessed it, April showers, I just had to play along!  Nothing like playing with some bright and cheery MME paper to chase the blues (and grays) away!  I used the papers from the Fine and Dandy line and made 2 other cards as well but will save those for another day!

Here's their sketch:
And my card:

 I cut out a sun and cloud from another section of the paper and popped it up right where it was on the piece I had on the card.  Love this effect.  The umbrella is traced and cut out from a MME diecut that was from another collection and didn't match!
I wanted to show my "new toy" that I got at CKC Portland last month.  Nothing expensive, in fact, super cheap!  I bought a Sakura clear glitter gel pen.  I used it here on random dots on the umbrella.  So easy to add a special little touch!
