Pilin' on the Rainbows

The theme this week at Pile It On is April Showers Bring May Flowers. I used the beautiful Pansies digi stamp by our sponsor, Sami Stamps:

The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps. I've seen this quote several different ways, but I do enjoy Dolly Parton! It's printed onto an ombre-patterned paper. The tiny umbrellas are a cut file by Bird's Cards. The window and matching windowbox dies are by Poppy Stamps; I cut them a textured white cardstock and white foam. The window is covered with scrap plastic and filled with MS microbeads.
