Rain, Rain go AWAY!

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

As you know I live in the UK and we are well know for our inclement weather.

If I could I would live where there was always sunshine but here we get a lot of rain all year round.

In July I am starting a monthly challenge blog and looking for 4 crafters to join my design team.
If you are interested please click the link to read the blog post :)

I have used Hobby House Elisabeth Bell image for this card.

Step by Step

1. A6 white card base.
2. Matted and layered green polka dot paper from Limited Edition Rose Garden paper pack.
3. Matted and layered the reverse of the paper down the centre of the card.
4. Matted and layered topper onto red card and adhered to base card.
5. To finish off cut out 3 umbrella's with red polka dot card and added the sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations #341 - Anything Goes
Creates & Makes #11 - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean  #154 - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart #158 - Always Anything Goes
