Colourful Umbrellas

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Darlene is hosting this with the theme “April Showers”. You can use anything “water related” as inspiration for your creation – we would love to see what you come up with. The DD_WaterRain_Apr21team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I was inspired by the bright colours of the umbrella in the top left photo of the inspiration picture. I used gingham designer paper which is layered onto light blue card-stock for my background. I stamped and die cut 5 colourful umbrellas. The top part of the umbrellas were stamped twice, fussy cut and then added with mirror tape for dimension on the background. I added some bright green leafy vines and cherry blossoms at the bottom of the card for a “springy” look. I finished off with a sentiment, bows and blue gem stones. This colourful card was a real joy to create!

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    When one umbrella just won’t do it, add a whole bunch! This card is the cat’s meow, and so amazingly cute. I just love it.
