What's in your umbrella?

Good Evening Crafty Friends and Followers

I hope you are having a great weekend.  Lovely and white here in Warrington, we had blue skies and the snow started to melt.   I cleared the back door steps out of the conservatory as my poor Tiggy went skidding and was not at all impressed!  Hubby has now cleared the front of the house, it is forecast for rain tomorrow so we will see.  Even though I love the snow I think we have had enough now.

The image I have used on my card today is a digi I won from a blog challenge last year from Shelly's images and it is called "come May flowers". 


6 x 6 scalloped white card
First layer is white card which I have stamped a flower using Versafine and then coloured using PanPastels Bright Yellow Green Tint.
The circle has been cut out using Spellbinder Splendid Circles die on a piece of First Edition Summer Breeze 6 x 6 paper pack.
I printed the umbrella onto Stampography card and cut out using Spellbinder Scalloped Oval die.
I have coloured the image with Copic's and Spica Glitter pens.  I have distressed around the bottom of the image using PanPastel Permanent Red Tint and the top with Ultramarine blue tint.
To finish off I have added "Happy Birthday" sentiment to the circle and gems to the corners.  The dragonfly is a charm which I found in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

I agree about the snow, Linda, poor Tiggy, it has cleared here in Edinburgh, much to Jet's disgust, as he loves funny watching him try to catch it in his mouth, LOL...Love this card Hun, so pretty and a fabulous image, I never use a Brolly, as I am so small and always have to raise my hand, above the bigger people, LOL xxxxx hope you are having a fab weekend, and again, Loving your blog, where did you get it from cause it is so pretty xxxxx
