Wishing Away Your Cloudy Day / CTO #111

Today is the last day of April and tomorrow is the first of May, which made me think of the saying "April Showers Bring May Flowers" and that was my inspiration for my card.

Our challenge this week over at Celebrate The Occasion is "Anything Goes"!!! Therefore it was up to my imagination to come up with something this week. I decided to wave goodbye to April and say hello to May by using rain boots holding a bouquet of flowers.

For my boots and sentiment I used a stamp set by The Stamps of Life called boots4rain and the flower bouquet is a print and cut from Silhouette Studio.

Supplies used: card stock - white; patterned papers - Lazy Summer Stripe by Three Bugs in A Rug, Thrilled in Happy Go Lucky by Pebbles and Madam in Letterbox by American Crafts; Silhouette Studio cut file; stamps - boots4rain by The Stamps of Life; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; twine and button - my stash; Pop Dots.

I hope you'll come and link up with us over at CTO  for our "Anything Goes" challenge and stop by to see the great inspiration the design team has!!!!
