Shower Umbrella

Happy Friday!
I hope your first few days of spring have been pleasant. I tell you, it hasn't felt much like spring around here. Yesterday it was in the low 40's all day and so windy it could blow you off your feet! I opened the back of my car and one of my reusable shopping bags blew out and I ended up chasing it half way across a parking lot. Yep...good times!

With spring hopefully on its way, it puts you in the mind of weddings and baby showers and even April showers. I used the color challenge on Splitcoast for my colors. I think they are nice, soft colors for a shower card. I stamped the umbrella and double chevron in gray ink because I wanted a softer look than black would have given me. I added color w/ Copics and cut the umbrella out. The sentiment was stamped w/ dark blue ink and die cut. I added some raindrops w/ the gray ink and went over them w/ a clear glaze pen. The top half of the panel was embossed then I added the umbrella, sentiment and one sparkly raindrop sticker. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
