April Calendar Girls Challenge

The card on my blog today is for our April Calendar Girls Challenge.  Our hostess, Carol, gave us the following challenge:

As the saying goes April showers bring May flowers....

To me April showers clean the earth of its worn out snow, dust and dirt along with nurturing new seeds and life to our surroundings (gardens, yards, trees, etc). It also, to me signals new beginnings....so for this month I would like for you to create a card that does just that...it could be a wedding card, a baby card, even a New Years card...OR it could be a card that uses something worn out or pre-used and develop a new use for it...ex: mesh bag from fruit...used once to hold fruit: new beginning...used on the card...repurposed.

Since I know a couple of people who will be having babies in the next few months, I chose to post this baby card I made at my stamp club.  The colors are Whisper White, Rose Red and Crumb Cake.  We used the SU! set Moving Forward and embellished with the small flower punch and pearl and some Crumb Cake seam binding.  The sentiment is also from a SU! set.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar for all the Calendar Girls blogs and check out their creations.
