Amber April Showers

Amber April Showers

Good morning and welcome to another Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  This image is perfect for me here it is April and that's right you guessed it we're having April Showers.

Congratulations to our winner and our Top 3 cards this week.  I do hope everyone had a fun filled happy Easter with friends and family.

This week Sally has another great sketch to work with and I know what your all say is this card bright, well I didn't realise until I was putting my posting together.  I found this rainbow coloured cord thought I would make my own embellishments and that's where the brightness came into play.

Sketch #012

Here's my card using Amber April Showers by our new sponsor 
Just Some Lines.

Our new sponsor this week is
