April Showers at Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Good morning again!  This is my second post for today because it's time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!   This week our challenge theme is April Showers!  How easy is that?!   We are welcoming a new team member today too...  {waves} Hiya Mary J!  Pop on over to the challenge blog and check out all the fabulous creations from the DT.

Now I know I could have used the lovely Paprika for this challenge, but I was feeling a bit contrary and I really wanted to use Cocoa instead as I love colouring her, so I whipped up an umbrella for her to hold. 






































































The papers are from Cosmo Cricket and I found this fabulous sentiment in my stash of new stamps that just arrived from Stamping Bella.  I think it belongs with an Uptown Girl stamp.  The seam binding ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the charm is too I think.  The crystals are from Prima.

Here's a close-up:
























And here are the copics I used:


















I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly: A stitch in time (machine stitched with button thread)
Shopping our Stash: April Showers (used the umbrella charm from my stash and sentiment stamp)
Get Hippity with Ippity: Rain or showers

Have a lovely day!
