My Sheri Crafts Challenge #107: Spring has Sprung!

Our current challenge @ My Sheri Crafts asks that you join us by creating a project that says spring to you!  It can be flowers, sunshine, birds, green grass -- whatever you feel says spring.  Considering what so many of you have recently encountered weather-wise, I'm very hopeful that as you read this spring is finally arriving!
I chose JustRite's "Showers bring Flowers" sentiment (Spring Words clear set) since we are blessed with beautiful wild flowers popping up all over the desert. Because they're totally dependent on late winter/early spring rains, they're infrequent here and always a joy to see.
My DP BG is My Mind's Eye's "In Bloom", soft, water-colored papers and their Miss Caroline's "Howdy Doody" was used for my flower and umbrella. The umbrella is from Papertrey Ink's "Scattered Showers" clear stamp set and hand cut as I don't own the dies. My flower was made with Cuttlebug's Quilled Daisy Kit, a recent purchase from Michaels. Embellishments include Spellbinders' A2 Polka Dots border die, which I LOVE, raindrops from Amuse and swirly gem flourish from Want2Scrap.
Think I've covered everything here, so now you can visit all My Sheri DT's projects and then please join us for this wide-open Spring challenge -- thanks for stopping by today!

Not only do pretty flowers come out in the Spring, but pretty cards do too! I love seeing all the pretty pink and pastel colours, it almost makes me forget that Spring is mud season here.
Your card is lovely and I really like the quilled flower. Was that fun to do?

Marge, this is so gorgeous! The raindrops at the edge of the umbrella adds a realistic touch! It makes me hope for rain here in the desert. :-)
