Singing in the Rain

We had a little bit of rain early this morning 
and the birds are loving it.
I do have errands to run today
 (I'm really not running yet, but my sprained foot is healing nicely.),
 but thought I'd share this card with you first.

I saw this weaving technique somewhere and just had to give it a try. 
It would have been so much easier if I had a chevron die.   
But, I'm fairly good at improvising and found a cut on one of the CTMH cricut cartridges that produced chevron pieces.  The weaving was fun (not!).  
Once the background was completed, it needed something that wouldn't detract from or obscure the weaving.  I don't usually work backward like this.  Luckily, this cute image (Great Impressions Stamp Springtime Birdie E906S), the sentiment (Great Impressions Stamp April Showers D387S) and the circle frame (CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge) were in the "pile" on my craft table waiting for a home. The corners are just a punched scalloped square cut in quarters. And the puffy flowers are CTMH embellishments.  

I am entering this card in the following challenges: 
Card Mania Challenge #91 - April Showers Bring May Flowers 
Scribbles Design Challenge #51 - Birds of a Feather
My Time to Craft Challenge #343 - No Designer Paper

Check out my umbrella giveaway here!

Now, I'd best get on with my day.
Have a good one!
