Make It Monday with The Kraft Journal - Rain

Good Monday Morning to you!

This week at The Kraft Journal we have a new challenge for you, and it's Rain, You know what they say, April Showers bring May Flowers, so I thought that was fitting for the challenge this week, and had the perfect sentiment for just that! Sometimes rain and cloudy days can make you feel a little gloomy, so I used some bright and happy colors! :-)))
 I started out using a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight.  I layered a piece of Buff Ivory cardstock to a piece of patterned paper adding a scallop edge to the Buff Ivory. Next I gathered a length of Strawberry Shortcake Bias Tape and wrapped it around the card front and tied in a fussy bow adding a prima green paper flower and pink button to the center.
I purchased a Rain and Cloud file from the Silhouette Store by Lisa Norris of Pretty Paper and Pretty Ribbon a while back which came in handy for today's challenge. :-) I added a sentiment to the cloud from Paper Sweeties: Spring is Here. Sophie is also from Paper Sweeties as well as her coordinated die-cut and her raincoat outfit is from the same set as the sentiment: Spring is Here.

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your rain creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

Since we are on the subject of Spring Flowers! I thought I would share with you some photos from our trip into DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival.

How about one of the White House?

I am also sharing at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Just B Creative - April Linky Party, Art with Heart - April Showers.

Thanks for hanging in there with me! Hope you have a great week!
