Sheltering from the rain

In anticipation of some April showers this little bear is sheltering from the rain. I expect we'll all be doing that soon after two weeks of sunshine here, but let's hope we're in for a good summer this year.

Truly Scrumtious has a challenge with the following sketch:


and here is my entry:

Truly Scrumtious Challenge #30 - April Showers which requires the card to follow the sketch provided and the theme of showers was optional.


I would also like to enter it into the following:
The Creative Cottage Challenge #7 - "Going Green" which can be the colour green or recycling something. I have gone for the colour green.
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #20 "Get it all out" which requires the use of neglected stash.
Creative Inspirations Challenge #31 - Recipe Challenge: 3 Flowers, 2 Design Papers, 1 Ribbon

The striped and spotty papers have been languishing in my stash for far too long (scrapbook papers from QVC a few years ago) plus the blue pearlescent card for the mats were also from old stash. The ribbon is from QVC and is laid onto Core'dinations Whitewash card in green. The flowers were from my stash (some were coloured with ProMarkers) and in the middle of the flowers are Card Candy from Craftwork Cards. The digi image was coloured with ProMarkers.
