Thinking of You

Good morning friends! I hope all is well...and that you're in for a wonderful weekend!! With all the rain that we've been "enjoying" to bring us our wonderful May flowers, this little umbrella card just made me happy!! It is the card I made for the Cardabilities Sketch #3! If you hop over to the Cardabilities Blog, you'll see a bunch of fun from the DT...and a lot of fun! I love this sketch, and am sure it will be referred to again and again.

I used my Scattered Showers Stamps from PTI for this card. I also used my fun new Dotty Biscotti patterend paper, also from PTI. I lvoe this image...what a perfect umbrella! I stamped the handle with brown ink onto the white square, then stamped my sentiment. I stamped the top of the umbrella onto the dotty biscotti paper, then cut it out and attached it with dimensionals to the handle. I mounted the umbrella layer onto Hawiian Shores paper and then added some Hawiian Shores buttons to the corner.

My card is a white base, Hawiian Shores layer and then another dotty biscotti layer. I used my scallop dies from PTI to make my white scallop across the card, then tied a nice Hawiian Shores twill ribbon.

I hope you enjoy seeing all the fun things the Cardabilities DT has to share...it's a great team for sure! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great one!
