Simon Says ,,,, April Showers Bring Spring Flowers :-)

Simon Says Stamp

Good Morning :-) I hope you're all well and enjoyed the Easter weekend :-)

It is time for a new theme over on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge ,,,,,


As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too

Guess who forgot we were showcasing Bo Bunny or Basic Grey this week !! yup ,,, moi !! I used My Minds Eye papers so then I had to carefully remove the image and re cut and stick ,,, I have a card ready for a later challenge that bears a striking resemblance to this one, you can pop back on Friday to see it !! :-)

I used this oldie but goodie House Mouse image, this is called Rainy Daisy Days, coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I then added oodles of star dust stickles on the raindrops.

The papers are from a brand new pack from Bo Bunny , these are called ‘Ambrosia’, I added 3 Bo Bunny pearls from an Ambrosia Jewels iCandy pack and have just noticed that one has slipped a bit ,,,, will fix it before posting ! :-) I used my fave Heart Swirl die and the small daisy punch from the April Card Kit, also coloured with stickles and a yellow gem popped in the middle. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and some vintage tape to finish :-)

Thanks for looking :-) our fabulous GD Mandy and the DT have made some gorgeous ‘Spring’ cards so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them Smile
