April Showers

I felt like doing a little bit of paper piecing and chose this cute couple from Cowgirl Up Stamps. This was a freebie from CJ when her followers reached 200. So cute, and perfect timing for everyone getting those April Showers!  I had fun paper piecing the umbrellas with some PTI cardstock (brown) and DP from Prima (pink).

I've entered this card in a few challenges:
One Stitch at a Time #10 - Theme: Flowers (I've added a rose)
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #80 - Theme: Distressing
Prairie Fairy Fridays #16 - Theme: Distressing
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #47 - Theme: Pink and Brown
Crafty Creations Challenge #64 - Theme: Distressing
Tellen's Place #14 - Theme: Ink Distressing
