April Showers

It's time for another challenge over at 

It's Shana's turn to choose our challenge and she chose....

I was stumped for a while.

The first two attempts didn't turn out well at all.

Then I saw this card by Darnell.

I happened to have a NBUS Cheerful Critters stamp set.

And it all came together.


I used my Lil' Inkers Stitched Square die to emboss
and cut a circle with the stitched circle die for the umbrella .

I just followed the triangles to cut the bottom of the umbrella.

The little chick was paper pieced.

Finally, I added some tiny rhinestones for "raindrops".

We have a super new Guest Designer at ATCAS.
Be sure to check out Pia's (Pia's Creative World).

I can go to Simon Says Monday Challenge again
