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. :)
