I'll be your umbrella


Good morning! I am glad that it is Wednesday - that means my very missed hubby will be home tomorrow. My oldest and I immediately came down with some sort of head cold as soon as he left. I have just been winded these last couple of days.

Here is a card that I created for the MFT challenge that they have over on Splitcoast every month for their guest designer. The challenge was to use a background stamp for something other than a background and it got a life of its own. It got pretty busy looking, but was fun nonetheless.

All the paper is Papertrey ink in their new colors and I sort of cheated because I didn't use a standard background stamp to stamp my flower, but rather a label stamp from Limitless Labels. I used the same stamp to paper piece her dress and the little doggies coat. The bow looks a little weird there but I wanted to hide part of the stamp outline. Next time, if I put her on the oval, I will mask off the frame. And of course the main shape is from the stamp set Rain or Shine. This set just spoke to me since I live the Pacific Northwest. Umbrellas make me think of here, but to be honest, true Washingtonians don't use umbrellas. :)
Cardstock: GP white, Berry Sorbet, Pink Patterns (PTI), Ink: Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush (PTI), Black Noir Pallete, Stamps: Limitless Labels (PTI), Rain or Shine (My Favorite Things), Other: Copics, Paper Flower (CTMH), Oval Nestabilities, Ribbon (PTI), SU! Ticket Punch

I hope you are dry today! Thanks for stopping by!

Sorry you're feeling crummy. Summer had NyQuil last night, so she's still conked out. Love the card. It immediately made me think of Holly Hobbie! (Uh oh. Now everyone knows how old I am!)
