April brings...

Good morning everyone!

It's time for a new Challenge at Sparkles Monthly and the theme is- 
April Showers Bring...  
I decided to make a couple of spring cards with the beautiful 'Children's Hour' collection from Graphic 45. When I'm not in the mood to stamp and color I love using paper collections and this paper pad is one of my favorites! 
All of the edges were distress with Antique Linen ink, I used Avery Elle & Pink & Main dies for the stitched rectangles, MFT die for the corner and a Echo Park die for the doily and that's about it :) 

I hope you can join us and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the teams beautiful cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for the comments you leave!

You have prompted me to take out some of my hoarded Graphic 45 Paper and actually use it! Great job composing these vintage cards - they have such a warm feel to them!
