Flowers and Umbrella

Hello Again,

For the first time I am playing along with Waffle Flower Challenge blog. Their color scheme and picture inspiration was a delight. So I had to join in! Here is my card, enjoy!

I was intrigued by the photo inspiration. The flowers and umbrella 
seemed so fitting for a Mother's Day card.
I used my 11 year old stylus and a sheet of foam
to emboss the umbrella lines. 
A dry embossed background adds continuous texture.
The flowers filling the umbrella were die cut and placed with
Waffle Flower's color scheme in mind.

Details showing the card in the light with shimmer 
and out of the light without shimmer.

Waffle Flower Challenge: April 2016- Photo Inspiration


As I write this we are getting bombarded with thunderstorms and deluge of rain. Spring is here in all its thunderous glory. Lawns are greening up and trees are getting harder to see through. And the smell of the breeze after a good soaking is so refreshing. Too bad it is 10:15pm or I would go out and take a whiff.. However, tomorrow is another day due to be cloudy and humid.. Perfect for the smell of Spring.

That is it for me.. I want to thank you so much for visiting here today. I do appreciate it and if you aren't already a stalker...... I mean..... follower I would appreciate that too.. Take care all and hope you have a great day..

All the best,
