April Showers Challenge

I don't know about the weather where you all are, but here in Oregon we have been breaking records with so many days in a row with rain.  Hopefully all this rain will not follow into our April!!  Even if the saying is April showers, to be honest with you I am all rained out!!
Our challenge this week is "umbrella".  Your project must have at least one umbrella somewhere on it.
I kind of cheated, I was torn between these fabulous papers from My Mind's Eye.  One has umbrella's and one has rain.  I chose to use the rain for the front and added the umbrella paper to the inside of the card.
The image that we are playing with this challenge is Ben.  Isn't he cute?  Guylou draws most of her digi-stamps from memories when she was younger.  Love this cute stamp.  I added polka dots to his umbrella. On this card I did some distressing to the papers. The sentiment set is from AmyR at All That Scraps. Love it!  I also used the cloud shaped nestability from Spellbinders.  Some rain drops and a square brad and there is my card!
And of course to show you my umbrella paper lets look at the inside of the card.
The winner of the challenge will be awarded two digistamps of your choice from Guylou's Inimtability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge.  Please make sure to follow the Challenge Policy listed in the left margin as it has recently changed.
I hope you will join in the challenge.  It runs from today through April 21st at 10PM EST.

This is fabulous Brenda: I particularly love the paper and haven't seen it here. It's amazing: we've set records this year In Perth for the most days WITHOUT rain. It never rains much at this time of the year but we have had only .4mm (about 1/100")since January and more than 60 days over 32c (about 90F)and I'm sick of THAT! Maybe we just always want what we haven't got, lol. I'll pop back later and drool over your other creations! Dee
