april showers bring May Flowers @ Allsorts

The challenge this week over at Allsorts is -April showers brings May flowers.

The die is Bloomington Border by Memory Box
For the front of the card I have cut the die into the 3 flowers and displayed them as a bunch
Sorry no idea of the papers
Coloured the flowers while still in the die using DI - Spiced Marigold and Shabby shutters the scalloped circle was also coloured in SM
Sentiment is Craftwork Cards
I have nothing that is related to rain or showers although we have had a lot of rain here today and some quite heavy downpours.

But on a brighter note, I have booked a holiday today, can't tell you when as there is now a clause on household insurance that if you say on Facebook or a blog, when you are going away,  or post pictures while you are on holiday you are not insured, as it is regarded that you are inviting burglars into your house.

Even though yellow isn't my fav colour (you may guess what is!!).... I really love this card.... what a fabbie layout and shape!

And thanks for that tip re house insurance.... I didn't know that - and it's something we often do... so will remember when we're away this year!

Very pretty card Kath! I've always thought it silly to advertise on internet when you're away - seems to me that it is asking for trouble!

I'm loving your scalloped circle cards here and in the previous post, Kath! That shimmery paper is so effective through the die cut; I think that's prezackly why it's making a flashy comeback. And the beautiful yellow bouquets and pretty papers here are going to bring a smile of sunshine to someone!! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Kath, love this gorgeous floral card with the sunny yellows and lovely stamps! Hope you've booked somewhere fabulous for your holiday, I always think people are a bit crazy to advertise that their house will be empty, and when!!!
