April Showers w/ Ribbon {3GJ Challenge #16}

Good Morning Bloggers!!
It is a happy day over here....
I am hosting the new challenge over at the
this week's challenge is~ 
April Showers w/Ribbon
This week's challenge will be open for 2 weeks, April 12th~April 25th so plenty of time to create and share!!
Our challenge is being sponsored by non other than us~
3 Girl JAM
So the winner will receive :
~$10 Gift Certificate to  3GJ
and a 
~Guest designer spot
Awesome prizes for sure!!!
So here is what I made~
I used an image from I am not was a prize I won a long time ago....a bunch of stamped images so if you know who she is..please let me know :)
I had so much fun putting this card together! I used my Cameo to cut the 3D umbrella, and added some 3GJ crinkle ribbon in Baby Blue (from the Baby Bundle), Trendy Twine in Lemon Tart and the sentiment from My Creative Time (Teeny Tag Greetings)
I colored her with my prismacolor pencils (a new addition to my craft room..thanks to my super sweet hubs!!) They are fun to color with and I know with more practice and lots more videos I will improve!
I did add some yellow stickles to her raincoat and hat, couldn't help it and of course added some machine stitching!
So there it is....
