April Showers....

...... have been in plentiful supply around here! So in honour (?) of this, I have made a card for a friend of mine, and then found a whole load of blog challenges based on the same theme! Dontcha just love it when that happens?

Here's the card:
The image and sentiment were printed in a craft mag which came last week, and you're allowed to scan/copy/resize at will. I find if I try and resize them, they get really pixelated which I hate, so I kept it small. She's been coloured with Promarkers and the edges inked in Tattered Rose distress ink, I also coloured the sentiment in with promarkers to tie it all in. Minimal, but bright and cheery. Unlike April Showers.

I would like to enter into the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar Challenge - April Showers
The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge - April Showers
Passion for Promarkers - yellow and pink
