April Showers bring May flowers

That's our theme this fortnight at Creative Card Crew set by the lovely Linda. Here's my creation:

I made my own patterned paper by rolling over plain pink and regal rose card with a jumboWhimsy wheel in chocolate chip. I've distressed the edges and daubed over more chocate chip too. The metal tag has been in my stash for so long and I finally opened the bag to make this - so maybe I'll use mroe of them now! The little love charm is attached with some linen thread.

Once I'd coloured the cute image, I added some chocolate spots using a coordinating Marker and then cut her out and popped her on some dimensionals. Have a look what the rest of the Design Team have created, there's some fab stuff there to inspire you and please join in, we love to visit and see what you've created.

I'm joining in with:
Well it's another beautiful Spring morning so I forsee playing in the garden with the boys for the remainder of my morning!
