The Card Concept Challenge #8

cover


Time for another challenge at The Card Concept!
This time we have another theme challenge...




Typically we would need to always have an umbrella on hand this time of year, but Tuesday morning I woke up to 2" of snow--Yikes!  We had some days last week that we didn't even need a jacket and today it is so cold.  Bye bye winter time for you to go.  A get well card inspired by both the inspiration photo and the striped paper pieced umbrella from Sarah Gray's post entered at CASology last week.  After colouring the umbrella several times I wasn't getting the look I wanted. As soon as I saw her bright and cheery umbrella I knew that was what it needed.

I used Weather Through from Fresh Squeezed Stamps and Blooming Marvelous from Clearly Besotted Stamps. Then I used Summer Sunrise cardstock from Papertrey Ink and Seen and Noted patterned paper from Pebbles for my design.

Love this, Tracey!!! I'd love to have an umbrella like that on my deck; it's just so bright and happy. We've had snow too, but "up north", my sister said she got 6"! So glad I don't live there! Blessed Easter. Bev
