April Showers....

It's Wednesday already! so time for a new Squiggle creation :0)
This week I have been inspired by a few different challenges..
I am entering my card into the following -
PaperTakeWeekly - Do something different...

I have used a Squiggle Digi stamp called 'Brolly Girl' for my card. I had not used this cutie yet and thought the image was perfect for the April weather we are having here in Scotland!!
The layout is the fabulous sketch from Sketch & Stash, I have flipped it so I did'nt cover any of the image up :)
I have tried something different in that I have heavily distressed all the edges of my papers!! not my usual style :) although I must admit I love how it has turned out! even my hubby liked it, he thought the layers looked like fabric. I have also used colours & papers I would normally stick to for boy/male cards.
Cardstock is all Coredinations, the bottom layer has been embossed and sanded too. The spotty paper is from a Dovecraft Men's paper pad.
I have added touches of glitter to the image and glossy accents to the puddle and raindrops.

Let's hope the April Showers do bring May flowers!!!

Thanks for looking xx

This is beautiful Jenny. I love the image and the colour combo works really well. Love the distressing.....I'm usually so scared of doing it that it can hardly be seen!

She is a real cutie and I love the colours. The distressing looks fab. I enjoy distressing occasionally for a change too. Quite different from your usual neat style but looks great. Marianne x
