Showers of Blessings!

 It's always fun to make baby cards!  This particular card was inspired by yet another gift sack. The funny part is that I forgot to even take a picture of it with the gift sack! Silly Me!  I never would have made this card unless I took inspiration from the sack.  That is one of the reasons why I love this little challenge that I am giving myself. It makes me use things I don't normally use and then use other things in different ways. For this particular card I ended up using "Scattered Showers" and "Baby Button Bits" for the focal images and then a die for the word "baby".

 The umbrella was diecut and then I added some diamond stickles to the center of each flower.  I also diecut the word baby twice; once out of the green and used the negative space and once again with the yellow to set it inside the green piece. I popped up the green piece to give it some extra dimension.

 I colored the floral image using copics and then adhered the buttons using glue dots. The ric rac was diecut out of yellow felt and then stitched down with my sewing machine. I also used my color spritzing tool to spray a little yellow ink onto the sentiment at the top. I scattered a few sequins here and there to mimic some raindrops. They are iridescent in real life but show up a bit more pink here in the photos.

I used the green diecut that was left over from the front and glued it down and then added crackle glossy accents (on accident).  Thanks for fluttering by!

Beautiful baby card, I always enjoy seeing the different ways you use your dies and stamps...and of course I feel you are the queen of layering pattern paper!
