April Showers bring May Flowers

Hello everyone, it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and this week Brenda is hosting with the optional theme of "April Showers bring May Flowers" and we can't wait to see what you'll create. 

I went with "showers" as the focus but there are flowers included here too. The silhouette stamps (girl and duck) are from a retired Stampin Up set (Million Dollar Moments).The flowers are from Lavinia stamps (Lavender). On the background I used a stencil also from Lavinia. Sentiment is part of this Penny Black sentiment set.

I embellished with some sheer polka dot ribbon, die cut flowers and dew drops. The patterned paper I used behind the image panel is ancient, from my early scrapbooking days circa 2002 when my papercrafting adventures began :)

As a reminder, prizes come from WOWVOWOakwood Direct and Craft Stash, these will be split between challenges 726, 727 and 728 with winners announced on May 26th. There is another set of prizes for our birthday challenge on May 20th (challenge729) so lots of chances to win this month!

I plan on sharing with these challenges:
