Crafting for all Seasons #24 April Showers

Time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is April Showers. We're being sponsored by Bugaboo, Jani's Kreativwelt Digi Stamps and The Stamping Boutique. I've used I'm Walking on Sunshine from The Stamping Boutique for my project.

I've opted to make a gift bag. Image has been digitally pieced using papers from Crafty Ann's. Backing paper is an image from Google. Punched mat is a Martha Stewart PATP. Sentiment is a digi from Paper and Such stamps and reads "If you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain".

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the creations of my team mates, you won't be disappointed.
