Spring showers and flowers

We are in Arizona and could really use some showers!  I know it is much worse in other parts of the country - I hope there is some relief soon.  Our weather map showed the possibility of showers - but they often do not materialize.
Okay - on to this card.  I really like the window box die and flowers (Cheery Lynn), but I struggle to know what to put behind the window!   This is an image by Beccy - I had to remodel the window (removed a bar at the top) to not obstruct her face LOL!  I found this DP in a much used pad by Prima.  I changed the sketch a bit so the design in the corner would not be covered completely.  There are gems on some of the flowers, and also black gems in the corners.  The Mom sticker is by Hot off the Press.  I used chalk pencils to color the image.  I hope you can see she is holding and umbrella (ok, could be a parasol!) to ward off the showers.

What a fabulous card Dorothy, you've been very creative putting it all together. I love the gorgeous Prima paper you've used on the front, and I love the window too. It was clever of you to remove one of the batons so you can see the lady's face. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy
