Ooh La La - Challenge #51 - April Showers

Hello everyone,
Wow, what another fabulous response to our last challenge, thank you for all your wonderful entries.  This time at Ooh La La Creations the challenge is called April Showers.  Interpret this how you like and make whatever your heart desires.  Can't wait to see what you all have to offer this time.
For my project this time I decided to make an origami box and found a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers which you can see here.  I think that maybe my card was a bit too thick as I had to use a bit of glue to stick down the inside flaps but I like how it turned out.
Then I printed out the Decoupage image from Dancing In the Rain from the Kiddiwinks CD which you can buy at the Ooh La La Store, along with many other CD's, digital images and much much more.
I used two of the backing papers from the same section and used the darker one of the two for the lid base behind the image.
For the sides I cut smaller rectangles of the lighter backing paper and placed them  on top of the darker one.  Then I added a teardrop gem in blue to each side of the box.  I added stickles glue in crystal to the raindrops on the image and also to the backing paper but I'm not sure they show up on the photo.
So there you have my project for this challenge, I hope you like it and that it has inspired you to have a go at our April Showers challenge this fortnight.
I shall also enter this into:
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Digidoodles Shop's Best - Spring (well it does rain in springtime)
