It is my week again at Try Stampin on Tuesday. The additional theme is April Showers. So I went with the saying April Showers Bring May Flowers. This sketch gave me a little trouble when I was putting the card together. I knew I wanted to use the Pictogram stamp set with this great flower pot but when it came to the background and diagonal strip I had trouble figuring out what to do.
I ended up using the Gorgeous Grunge set to make a nice textured background that was nice and soft. I made the strip to match the flower pot and then used a die cut zig zag instead of a ribbon for a little extra detail.
