April showers?



We have a new challenge for you over at the Creative Card Crew blog, and this week we'd like to see your interpretation of "April Showers". What does the phrase bring to mind for you? Rainy weather? Spring colours? May flowers? Or a zombie holding an umbrella? :P We're sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp, so get your mojo up and running and enter our challenge for your chance to win!
My card uses one of the sah-weet Skelekinz images by Bugaboo, which I've altered slightly. In the original, she's holding a skull balloon, but I sweapped that for an umbrella and used the skull to make flowers across the bottom. Now, Bugaboo does have some wonderful Skelekinz images tat are holding umbrellas, but sadly funds won't allow any new purchases at the moment, so I had to alter one I already had.
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter:

Sketchy Colours - sketch
The Play Date Cafe - pink blue and silver (see photo)
Cupcake Craft Challenges - make us giggle
Take a Word - umbrella
Irish Teddy's - double matting
Sentimental Sundays - Let's get wet
ResQ Challenge - rounded corners
Raise the Bar - April showers or any kind of weather
Crafty Catz - April showers (water)
One Stop Crafts - spots and dots
So Artful - April showers bring May flowers. Well, nearly :P
Catch the Bug - anything goes
Crafty Calendar - April showers bring May flowers
Alota Eubber Stamps - something funnt
Stamping Vacation Name That Card - live in laughter. Hmmm, mine might be better described as "dead in laughter" :P
Phindy's Place - humour

Loving this card Susan! How can I resist skull fleurs?! Reminds me of the one I have tattooed that I drew with a fat bat holding it. Very cute. I need to break out with my Bugaboos.
Put it on the list...
