April Showers,challenge #6 Going Grey with Scrap-Creations

Here in New England April weather can anywhere from wintry to hot and sunny. This April so far has been no different. Last week we almost hit 90 and this week we could have frost. It has been so rainy that there was lots of flooding and now flowers and trees are blooming. The challenge this week for Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is paying tribute to crazy April weather where ever you may be.

This week's challenge is

April Showers....

You can interpret this however you like as long as it has something to do with weather, flowers blooming, rain drops falling, be creative! Don't forget the only thing we require is that you use Basic Grey Paper on your creation!

The ladies have really out done themselves with creations to inspire you this week so be sure to stop by and show them some love.

I loved this challenge because I couldn't wait to use this cute image from Phindys Digi Stamps. I have it colored for awhile but just not the right opportunity to use it until this challenge. I went for a colorful card this time instead of my usual pastels. I knew I wanted a bright yellow slicker. I was lucky to find great BG paper to match after coloring my image first then looking through the paper. Sometimes doing it this way bites me in the butt if you KWIM! These glitter buttons are new from American Crafts and I have every color because I love the sparkle of them.

Here are some other fantastic challenges that fit my card
