Crazy Card Party Challenge #13 - April Showers!

It is my turn to host the Crazy Card Party Challenge this month!  I challenge you to create a "April Showers" Themed card!  This is free for interpretation... so anything weather, clouds, april memories, spring will fit!  I just really had this card in mind when I thought of the challenge!  I have always wanted to create a card with an umbrella and have some flowers growing out of it!

on the inside of the card it says...

2.       Cut the same cut from brown cardstock.
3.       Cut the from Mint Cardstock.
4.       Cut the Layer 1 from the flowered patterned paper.
5.       Cut the 3 flowers from pink woodgrain patterned paper at 1 ½” and 3 at 1 ¼”
6.       Cut the 2 flowers from yellow woodgrain patterned paper at 1 ½” and 2 at 1 ¼”
7.       Ink the edges of all the cuts.
8.       Create a card base with the white cut umbrellas.
9.       Glue on the Brown umbrella. Then the mint and flower cuts.
10.   Cut the rolled flower die from felt in pink and yellow and place in the centre of the flower.
11.   Die cut cloud from white cardstock. 
12.   Stamp sentiment on cloud and ink the edges in silver ink.
13.   Stamp the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card.
14.   Add a bow tied in pink ribbon.
