Rainy Thoughts

Good morning, Friends! It's looking like it will be a fabulous day around these parts! Sunshine and warm temperatures! The flowers are starting to peek through the soil and the grass is greening up! Love it! Hopefully the wind won't blow today.

Today's card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. I needed a quick card for today and this fit the bill! I think the one I saw was done by Mary Fish. Super easy! I flagged the end of a strip of Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper and adhered it to a strip of Pacific Point that had been flagged and then then adhered them to a card base of Whisper White. Then I punched a circle out of Old Olive with the 2 1/2" circle punch. I trimmed it up and popped it up onto a smaller piece of Whisper White. On the white I stamped the umbrella handle from Rain or Shine in Basic Grey, cut it out and then adhered this panel to the card. On a scrap of Whisper White I stamped the umbrella top in Pacific Point and popped it up. On a strip of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point and flagged the end. This is adhered to the Olive piece. I punched a flower from Daffodil Delight using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and adhered it to the umbrella. I threaded some white baker's twine through a Daffodil Delight button and tied a bow. This is adhered to the card. Finally I added a rhinestone to the flower center. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
