CBCC #37: April Showers Bring May Flowers & BIG NEWS!

Hi Everyone! This week's challenge at CBCC is April Showers Bring May Flowers....so we want to see some flowers on your creation! This was my favorite challenge so far....I just LOVE FLOWERS!!!! The more flowers I can put on a card the happier I am!!! I even got to use my new mini roses on this card!

I used Willow with Umbrella from Whiff of Joy, and colored her with my Copics. Her umbrella was colored with my Twinkling H2Os (which I am still trying to get the hang of....don't really have the hang of shading with them yet)! The sparkles on the umbrella are some chunky glitter (don't really care for this look either....but they were already glued on so I just went with it)! I added glossy accents on the rain drops to make them shine.

Here's a close up of Miss. Willow! She's so sweet!
And then a close up of my funky fun flower! This was so much fun and so easy to make, thanks to the directions that I got from HERE! I saw my good buddy, Rach, make one of these not so long ago and had to give it a try! It adds fun dimension to your card!
Now go and create your flower creation and make sure to link it to Courtney's blog for your chance to win some goodies! Also make sure you go and check out what the other chickies did with flowers....I can't wait to see their amazing creations! Their links can be found in my side bar!
******************************************************************************
Now I have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT to make!
I am honored to say that I have been selected to be on the Embellish-Online DT! Woo-Hoo....I am so excited to work with these girls (especially my dear friend Michelle...she's the one who told me to try out for the DT Call in the first place....thanks so much hun)! My term is going to be from June - December so get ready to see some fun creations with all sorts of products! You can read the official post HERE! Congrats to all the ladies who have been chosen...I can't wait to get to know you all!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
I will be working on those literature papers that are due the end of this week! Oh how I am counting down the days until the semester and finals are OVER!
