DL.ART Thankful Thursday #202 - April Showers

Happy Thursday!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday challenge at DL.ART. The theme this week is fitting - April Showers!! If you used the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your purchase at the DL.ART shop.


For my project, I've made encouraging shaker cards using papers from Maja Designs.


To cut the window for the shaker and to frame it, I used Gina Marie Big and Little Pierced Chain dies.


The cloud is a Die-Versions Rainy Die die. I cut it in three colors and pieced it together. This gorgeous ribbon is Baby Blue from the Baby Bundle.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The leaves are Sue Wilson Mosiac Leaves dies. The banner is a Sue Wilson Pierced Flag die. This beautiful ribbon is Primrose from the Spring Bundle #1.


I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
2) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your April Showers project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

Gorgeous way to use this lovely cloud of rain, and what perfect colors you've chosen for each card. A clever shaker card with the cloud, rain & sunshine, and all the wonderful ribbons, layers and dies show off this die so splendidly. Always have to look, then relook at your cards, cause I always miss seeing some great element you've tucked in. TFS & Hugs. Happy Easter.
