Oldie but a Goodie - April Showers

This fortnight over at Oldie but a Goodie, the challenge theme is:

'April Showers'

Not sure what the prize is for this challenge...so I'll update this post when I find out :0)

I've used a Happy Hopper image called 'Puddle Fun' that was sent to me in a swap absolutrly ages ago...it's been waiting patiently to be coloured...and I thought it would be just perfect for our theme! As it's so large, I kept the rest of the card really simple...using just one paper (from the 'Wild Asparagus' collection from My Mind's Eye)...distressing the edges, and adding some faux stitching.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
