April Showers

We're half way through this fortnight's 'Kids come out to play' challenge at Top Tip Tuesday so I've made a little card to share.  For my image, I've used an oldie, Patsy April Showers, and based on the winter weather we had so far this 'spring', the image seemed quite appropriate.  Patsy looks like she's having fun jumping the puddles.

I embossed the base panel with Swiss Dots as I thought it complemented the rainy theme (I usually use it for snow too!) and added some blue pearl dots around the edge of my cloud die (I think I might have gone slightly overboard with them though).  I also chalked some clouds as a background to my image.

ps : I've just realised that I've not used any designer papers nor any flowers on this one.  I think that might be a 'first' for me.
