Dreamweaver Stencils Showers

Ever use the expression, "When it rains, it pours"? This does not have to be a bad thing, does it? For the month of April, the Dream Team are featuring "Showers of Showers" as our theme. As usual, we'd love for you to play along. Just link your creation on the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...bonus chances for incorporating Dreamweaver and/or Stampendous in your design. Here's what I'm showering you with this week...
I used the Petals background stencil because they look more like rain drops to me. I dry embossed the pattern and then inked it with Ranger's distress ink and an ink blending tool. The blue die cut is by Dreamweaver Stencils called the Nesting Dies out of Coredinations cardstock. I die cut the umbrella by Marianne Designs and the word baby by Clearly Besotted out of white cardstock {Recollections} and inked them with green distress ink. To finish up my card the ribbon is by May Arts and the rhinestones by Queen and Co.

  19. You are right!! It doesn't have to be bad!! lol When I kinda get bummed when it is raining etc. I think of all the people who need the rain and who it is benefiting (for example farmers etc.) then it doesn't seem so bad!!

    Your card is fabulous! Love the color combo. Thanks for dancing in the rain with us over at the Sisterhood of Crafters. And a special thanks for linking up your card to our "April Showers" challenge.
