Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.
  So here is my take on the theme which is 'April Showers bring May Flowers.
I made this 4 x 4 fat page, which is also my monthly swap piece and is now with my friend, who doesn't blog.
The background is random stamped, all colouring and shading is distress inks and watercolours.
The image is from a Mabel Lucy Attwell CD.  I used memory Box die cuts for the poppies and grasses.

It is ages since I joined  a Challenge at Make My Monday this week the theme is Anything but a Card goes, I'm sure this 'fat page' will be okay.

Thank you for stopping by I always appreciate your comments.
