April Showers

Happy Friday! It's Easter weekend and I want to wish you a very special and wonderful Easter! May the Lord bless you and your family with his love and protection. We aren't traveling this weekend and we hope to spend some time in our getaway place, Baby Creek. No Internet, no TV. Just lots of peace and quiet and a skunk who has suddenly appeared in the evenings. Last week we were dog sitting for friends and the poor dog found the skunk. Yikes! Fortunately it didn't get sprayed too badly. But the dog itched it's nose a lot after that.
My card today is about April Showers and features another Doodle Pantry new release called Umbrella Ants. For a limited time this set is free with any purchase. In my card I've used the already colored image but the set also comes with outlines too.
I used a Martha Stewart border punch, some Spellbinder's and Quick Cutz dies, ribbon, buttons and some tear drop self adhesive bling. I am entering this card into these challenges:
Hope you have a super Easter weekend.

Hi Donna! I was excited to see your blog name, then saw that you work at IU. I grew up in Spencer and my whole family is still in the Bloomington area. I'm the black sheep who moved to the East Coast a few years ago. LOL!
Love your bright and sunny creation! The raindrop gems are so perfect for the image. Thanks for joining us this week at Card Patterns!

Donna, I am a week late but love your card. Color blocking is the rage now and that is what I thought of when I saw your lovely card. Love the layers of primary colors. Hope you had a wonderful getaway last weekend and it refreshed you.
hugs....
