April Showers bring May flowers

Hello Peeps

Today's card is a birthday card for early May. I've used the lovely 'enjoy the rain' image from Saturated Canary again. I think it's so appropriate for this time of the year (well it is here at the moment in a very wet UK). I also had great fun colouring it too with my Promarkers!
Digi doodles current challenge is Pink & Brown, so that's what I've gone with, with a slight hint of green on the umbrella. I'm not too much of a pink person so I didn't want to OD on the pink too much, & with her hair being brown I didn't want to lose the umbrella in it.
Fabulous Friday challenge @ Frosted Designs is rolled paper. So out came my current favourite die, and flower cutting & rolling commenced. I've added glitter to the flowers & the rain drop for a bit of sparkle.  
I thought the lovely sentiment of April Showers bring May flowers, tied in the image, flowers & the time of the year quite nicely. 

I'm entering the following challenges

Digital Tuesday 157 - Winter Blues - Rain but I'm turning it into a positive! lol
Pile it on challenge - 17 - Sparkle shine - Glitter on flowers & raindrop 
Aud sentiments challenge - Anything goes
Inky Impressions challenge - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Link Party

I'm entering this into Saturated Canary too, I didn't enter it before now as I intended on doing another birthday card using a SC image. This is the dilemma, when you can only enter once. I don't mind the 1 entry rule, it's just that I love these images sooo much the likely hood of me using them more than once in the 2 week challenge period is very high! So I have to decide do I enter this one, or do I hold out for my next creation! LOL
Anyway with it being Bank holiday weekend here in the UK, I know now I won't get chance to create another card using a SC image before the closing date, so hence this one will be this challenges entry.
