WEST April Design Challenge: April Showers Bring May Flowers

We had such a great response to our last month's design challenge, that it's time for another one! If you haven't participated before, here's how it works:
I'll post the theme/inspiration on the blog and in our team discussion forum on Etsy. Your job is to take that inspiration in whatever direction your imagination leads. The goal is to challenge yourself, be inspired and enjoy the creative process!

As you think about the theme, add comments to the discussion thread on Etsy about your process. Take pictures of your process and the finished item and post them in the discussion thread when you are done. It's interesting and inspiring to others to hear the story about how you arrived at your finished product, so please share at least a comment about your process! I will post the results of the challenge after the deadline. If we get enough items, I'll make a treasury including all the items!

And now on to the current challenge! The theme for the next month is 
"April Showers Bring May Flowers!" 
There's so much you can do with this one...think raindrops, umbrellas, spring, flowers, colours of spring, anything goes! The deadline for this challenge is four weeks (one month) from yesterday, April 18, with the results being posted on Friday April 19.

A few notes: 
Create something new, especially for the challenge. Entries for each challenge must be finished by the posted deadline. Vintage and supply sellers are welcome to participate too, with a focus on artful photography and careful choice of item. 

Happy designing! I hope this inspires you, and I can't wait to see what you'll come up with,
so come on, let's get creative!
