Showered with Love!

One card....FOUR challenges! Oh my gosh I'm so excited! This card is nothing how I envisioned (it started out as a seal on a beach LOL) but I'm so glad because I just love it! It came together so easily and it was so fun!

The first challenge is Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #2 April Showers bring May Flowers. The second is over at Paper Playtime where we needed to make a card that had to do with the weather. Next I'm entering it in Paper Sundaes Challenge #65 using texture. Finally over at Die Cuttin Divas their challenge #10 is to use 2 different cuts from 2 different cartridges. Take a look!!
Lots to explain on this one! First I embossed the entire background with the D'Vine Swirl folder and inked the edges. The sun and clouds came from Create a Critter cartridge. The couple and umbrella are from Sweethearts. I used a small punch for the hearts, put glossy accents on them and finished them with glitter. The sentiment is computer generated and printed on vellum. and lastly, I used the Victorian Photo Corner punch by ek success to add some color around the edges! I am really really happy with how this card turned out!
