Dots and Stripes with April Showers

I stayed in this Saturday to do a little decluttering of the craft room.  I'll be moving to the upstairs unit in my building this month, so I'm really dreading the move of my delightful crap :)  As many of you probably know, the craft room is filled with stuff to play with so the idea of moving it seems so daunting (especially since it's not fully organized.

The plus side of moving upstairs...I'll get to reorganize!

Anyway, after I cleaned out a section of the room, I decided to tackle some projects for blog contests.  I was able to combine two contests in one project, so that I can soon start some of the other stuff on my list.

Today's project qualifies for the Card Cupids Sunday Challenge and The Paper Variety's picture inspiration challenge.  Here's the picture we were supposed to use as inspiration in creating our projects.

We were told we could be literal or we could pull elements from the page (like the color scheme).  I actually used the color scheme and found a blue print that had the same shape as the white flowers in the picture.  See?

The Card Cupids challenge asked us to use Dots and Stripes this week, so I made sure that my printed yellows and blues had that.  Pretty simple card to make, but I think it's super cherry to send off to Card Cupids for one of the kids that needs a little pick me up.  I'll need to make a few more cards to add before sending off, but they have a drive right now called April Showers of Smiles and I challenge all of you to make some cards and send them off to put a smile on someone's little face.
