Make My Monday - April Showers Bring May Flowers (Conquering Paper Mountain # 9)

'April Showers Bring May Flowers' is this week's challenge at Make My Monday .I stamped and coloured this old image (Woodware?) and paper-pieced it like crazy, thereby reducing my paper mountain. (Well, fractionally!)

I hope you'll join us with your projects featuring flowers, showers or both.

  13. This is fantastic! I love the pattern and the inked edges almost give the illusion that it is a negative die in the pattern creating a frame around the image. So cute!
