April Showers Bring May Flowers

Over at the Power Poppy blog, the challenge is to do something with your birth month. My birthday is in April and though I like that the stone is a diamond, it doesn't scream color challenge. And there aren't too many holidays in April, except April Fool's Day and about a hundred birthdays of my family and friends.'s the craziest month for birthdays over here.

So instead of that, I just used the little ditty we heard in school, April Showers Bring May Flowers...and what do Mayflowers bring? Pilgrims! No, I didn't make a project with pilgrims, rather I used May flowers. I have some heritage roses that bloom in May and they are gorgeous—a beautiful shade of pink and they smell even better!

I used my Prismacolor pencils on this lovely digi. I trimmed off the second cup of roses so I could use a larger image. Hope you'll join in with your birth month here.

Happy Friday!
