The party is still going - and YOU are invited to celebrate my retirement with me here! :) :)
"April Showers Bring May Flowers" - oh, boy I sure hope so!!! We are having the worst storms ever here in Northern California - even a "real" tornado - we never get real tornadoes. Anyway, for this card I chose this wonderful image from Sassy Cheryl "April Showers".
This is my first attempt at a side-step card - WHAT FUN!!!
I used my cuttlebug to cut and emboss the clouds from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps; the fence is Tim Holtz and the sentiment is cut with the "blossom" die from Spellbinders. And the darling (fell in love with these) umbrella I found at my LSS. Glittered up all the roses with Martha Stewart fine glitter.
