Going Grey with Scrap-creations: Spring Showers

This card was one I took forever creating.  I started it on Friday night and finally finished it up on Saturday night.  I was struggling with my Janome sewing machine and the new thread I had purchased.  It just didn't want to cooperate with me so I gave up and put in a different thread which worked like a charm.

Our challenge this week at Going Grey with Scrap-creations is Spring Showers.  I immediately thought of this stamp because I can't stand the rain (unless I'm home in bed, in my jammies) but I love the green grass afterwards and the blooming flowers.  

I used the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #108 for this and the Basic Grey Kioshi paper that my  buddy Kristen surprised me with.  I wasn't too sure about the pattern combination but now when I see it all together I think it looks okay.

Check out the other girls creations this week as well as our new guest designer:

I hope you will join us this week over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations-keep in mind the theme is Spring Showers and Basic Grey papers.
