Congratulations

Hi everyone ~  A really brief post today...This week’s theme at The Card Concept is to use an umbrella on our card and for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge we are being asked to Keep it Clean and Simple. For the CASology Challenge our Cue Card this week is 'Garden', so I am entering my card in all 3 challenges:

 


I just received some new Lawn Fawn goodies, and couldn’t wait to ink up this set. I stamped and die cut the flowers and Hero Arts umbrella, popped everything up on my Mama Elephant scalloped panel and added a greeting. The umbrella handle was stamped and embossed on vellum and die cut. Here is a close up:





I think this card is considered clean and layered, since the elements are popped up, yet there is a significant amount of white space.

Well, that’s it for me today...Thank you so much for stopping by...I appreciate your sweet comments very much!

OH Barb!! I LOVE this!!! What a cute cute card and so beautifully executed! This was what I first envisioned when I saw this challenge, but couldn't figure out how to pull it off without any umbrella stamps. Now I'm inspired to try it again one day!
