Carol is April's Shining Diamond!!

It was a tough choice this month!  Carol from OurLittleInspirations.blogspot.com is our winner!!!

Here is her card:
 I love this card.  Her contrast between the white and Razzleberry is so crisp, and the white embossing is just beautiful.  Add bling to the centers, and it is a beautiful card!  Did you notice that the centers are proportioned to the flowers?  Great job, Carol!  Email your address to BobbisTreasure at aol dot com so I can send your prize!

W2SB Challenge #4 - Shine Bright Like A Diamond

April is one of my favorite months of the year.  What's not to love? April means spring is finally here, Easter is close, and at my house - Birthdays!!!  My son has an April Fool's Day birthday, and mine is later in the month.  Throw in nieces and nephews, and the month becomes one big birthday party!!

I am sure you are wondering - where is she going with this?!?!?  The April birthstone is a diamond. Pop singer Rhianna sings the song "Shine Bright Like A Diamond," about how we are ALL diamonds, bright and beautiful, coming in many shapes and sizes.  If you want to hear the song or read the lyrics, click HERE.  Shine bright like a diamond, we're beautiful like diamonds in the sky!! 

Ann from Pawsitive Thoughts by Annie was our winner of the February Olympics/Colours of Our World Challenge, so she is our Guest I-Teamer for April!  Here is her wonderfully detailed sample:
