My dahlin stamping friend Carol (known as  momcgw on SCS) is the awesome hostess for the month of April and  she encouraged the rest of us with the following challenge
(see here below in her own words) :

 APRIL 2013 CHALLENGE
As the saying goes April showers bring May flowers....

To me April showers clean the earth of its worn out snow, dust and dirt along with nurturing new seeds and life to our surroundings (gardens, yards, trees, etc). It also, to me signals new beginnings....so for this month I would like for you to create a card that does just that...it could be a wedding card, a baby card, even a New Years card...OR it could be a card that uses something worn out or pre-used and develop a new use for it...ex: mesh bag from fruit...used once to hold fruit: new beginning...used on the card...repurposed.. I know all of you are very talented crafters and I can hardly wait to see what you come up with...

Have fun with this challenge...
((hugs)) Carol




This ia a THREE in ONE kind of card for me :
1) I desperatley needed a baby boy card for a sweet lil boy who's now already 3 months old...yikes...hence my 'new beginning' choice...
2) I followed the sketch to my left, as part of  the 'You Can Do It Challenge16' , which I partecipated in...
3) Last but certainly NOT least, it is made with this month's CG challenge in mind....
3 fer 1! ;o) *grin* 
For this card I also re purposed the back of a baby shower's invite (see colorful footsies background) plus, the lime green and yellow c/s are from my scraps bin....:/
