Paper Girls Challenge Blog - April Showers Bring May Flowers

I'm an April baby so I thought that The Paper Girls Challenge Blog gave me an awesome present when they asked me to be a guest designer this month. The first April Challenge is to honor the adage "April Showers Bring May Flowers" with umbrellas, raindrops, or flowers.

Given that April is an important month I've had to get over the drudgery of that whole rain thing and long ago embraced my inner child and jumping in rain puddles. Jumping in the rain makes me think of singing in the rain. Hey! That's sort of a romantic movie. And then this card was born:

I found that cute couple in the Silhouette Studio store and put my little machine to work cutting them and the bracket out. Then, I used the sketch pens to sketch on the quote (which is more legible in person and says, "True love is like rain; it reaches us all."). 

A little inking, a little twine and i-rock gems and I was done making this card for my hunny.

Now don't forget to link up those challenges! 


  1. Cute card! I love that silhouette and cute quote! What date is your birthday?? :-)

  2. Happy Birthday, April baby! I love how you mixed patterned paper here- it really looks like rain. The silhouette continues to amaze- that die cut is perfect for this card. Nice job!

  3. Oh I LOOOOVE that diecut! CUTE!!!

  4. Jessica - Thank you for being a guest designer over at The Paper Girls. This card is so beautiful.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
