April {Bridal} Showers

Hello!  It's been about a week since my last post, but this seems to be the beginning of my busy season so you'll probably be hearing from me a little more often for the next month or so.  Weddings, graduations, and Mother's Day (oh my!) are going to keep me very busy!

Today the occasion is a wedding.  A bridal shower to be exact.  My co-worker asked for a special card for a friend of hers.  The theme- April showers and parasols!  Say no more!  I knew of just the image for the occasion!  This is Umbrella Love from A Day For Daisies and it is one of Sami's images (my first purchase from her collection, but definitely not my last!).  This cute couple is colored in Copics with a bit of paper piecing on the umbrella.  At first the requested pink and navy color scheme had me stumped, but I found some lovely papers in a couple of my My Mind's Eye pads (Moments and Lost & Found Two: Blush) that worked wonderfully!  Embellishment-wise there's a little something for everyone on this card: embossing, die cuts, punches, pearls, and flowers!  Not to mention a fantastic sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge!  They also have an optional challenge of "Rain, Rain, Go Away" as well.



And speaking of showers,  I am off now to work on some things for my brother and his fiancee's Jack & Jill shower which is Saturday!  Like I said, it's going to get busy around here!  I can't believe my baby brother is getting married one month from today!  

Markers used: Copics (E11, E00, B32, B34, B37, B39, 100, N0, N4, N8, E23, E25, E37, E39).
