I don't know whether it's the same where you are but we don't seem to have had many April showers yet this year. Our only wet days this month seem to have been the ones the grandchildren came to stay (and oddly enough, the only day this coming week that rain is forecast, we have them coming over for the day!) . So I hope that doesn't mean we are short of flowers in May, because around here the spring flowers in gardens and in the countryside have been magnificent this year.
The flower border on this card is a very old stamp, about 8-10 years old - that was supposed to go on a roller type gadget made by Fiskars to make it possible to stamp a continuous long border. I could never get to grips with the roller, but the stamp was too big for any of my acrylic blocks, so it gathered dust for years until I got my Misti with a nice big surface to hold the stamp.
The umbrella and sentiment stamps are from a couple of Clearly Besotted stamps that are 2 or 3 years old, and I've used a magazine freebie stencil and some Cosmic Shimmer blending ink to add the raindrops.
Because April showers often mean rainbows, I've coloured my card all in the colours of the rainbow - except for Indigo. I've never really come to terms with Indigo, I think it's a myth and was only invented to make the mnemonic "Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain" some legitimacy!
