It's Raining Flowers

Good morning!  I got up early this morning to finish this card to share with you due to an impending challenge deadline.  It's difficult to take a good photo of an easel card on a gray day in FL   I wanted you to see the sentiment because it set the tone of the card.  I cut out the umbrella and inserted it above the hugging bears.  It's raining flowers instead of rain drops because they are in love, love, love!  The cute bears set the direction for pastels. Brown Sugar required an easel card, and this is what I ended up with so I hope you like pastels.   If you can, follow my blog or make a comment when you stop by.  This card will be entered in the following challenges:  Creative Card Crew--cloud background;  Die Cuttin' Divas--die frame and sentiment frame;  Paper Take Weekly--BINGO, die cuts/free/buttons;  Pinspirational Challenges 52--rainy day, couple hugging;  Tuesday Throwdown 142--fancy folds, easel card;  Paper Pretties  blog--buttons; Simon Says Stamp--April showers;  Brown Sugar--easel card;    DLArt Thankful Thursday--rain;  Crafty Ribbons--pink and green;  Milk Coffee Challenge--Welcome Spring;  Live Laugh Stamp/Word Play--weather;  The Pink Elephant--pastels,  Forever Friends Biweekly -- Die cuts &/or punches;  Wags & Whiskers--April showers/Spring;  My Time to Craft--Up in the Sky, One Stop Craft Challenge--pastels; Rogue Redhead Designs--April Showers.   DT members, if I should inadvertently miss a challenge rule, please delete my entry or notify me.  Thanks.

OMGosh, Kren, you've been really busy! I've gotten so far behind this week on visiting my fav blogs and there's just so little time to get caught up. I adore both of your last two easel cards, and this one with those adorable bears in the rain is just precious. It took me forever to try an easel card, but I really do like them. Yours are marvelous!
