April Showers, and Showers

I know that rain is usually a good thing, and yes, it will make the grass greener, flowers and blossoms abound but I am already tired of it! I am a creature that needs sunlight, and too many cloudy, over-cast days really take a toll on my state of mind. Thankfully the sun is going to be out all weekend and I plan to be out enjoying it as much as possible! Alright, sorry for the rant... For today's card I used the new Stampin Up set "Soft Summer" that can be found in the Spring/Summer Mini that just came out on April 1st. This set is so beautiful and I love coloring in the pretty dogwood blossoms. For the card today I used only my Stampin Pastels (chalks) to color in the image. I love the soft look of chalks and I am very happy with the results. The DP is by Martha Stewart that I bought in the clearance section at Michael's. The satin ribbon is from Big Lots, and the brads from S.E.I. I hope that all of you have a wonderful weekend and thank you for visiting my blog today!
