Umbrella Blessings

Hello, it is Shirley today! The weather we have had lately has been rainy so we have had  need to carry  an umbrella.  When I titled my card, I was thinking about how carrying a umbrella actually is a blessing. The state of California is really needing rain and what a blessing it would be if they had rain.  Here is the card I have for you today, this is the flowers after the rain.

I started my using a pink card base. I had this paper in my stash and it was one of those you just hate to cut.You cannot tell it by the picture, but the flowers are embossed. I used the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B  to cut the flower paper for the next layer. I used the Impression Obsession Rectangles 6-in-1 Frame die to cut the pink frame.

I used the same pink paper to cut the Impression Obsession Country Fence. I sponged it with a light coral ink to give it more of the background color of the floral paper.

I used some lavender paper to cut the umbrella using the Spellbinders Umbrella Trio. I sponged it with a plum colored ink. I used the same paper to cut the Memory Box Rhone Butterfly Wings.

The sentiment I used is Our Daily Bread Ornate Frame Sentiments. The tag was cut using the Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One. These tags are my favorite because most of the tag dies I have are much too large to use on a card. This one is always the perfect size. (This set comes with 3 dies).

I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to attach my pieces to my card. As my finishing touch to my card, I embellished with Silver Rhinestones which have assorted sizes.

I appreciate your taking a look at my card today.
