Playtime!

I got some new goodies in the mail the other day from Close To My Heart and had to play with this new stamp set! I just love the umbrella! I stamped the outline on the cream cardstock then again onto the DCWV matte stack DP, cut out and popped it up with 3D foam tape. Added lots of sprinkles to make it look like a rainy, wet umbrella- which works perfectly with the sentiment. Some days are just umbrella days, but we always come through them, even just a bit wet. This card is for the Color Throwdown Challenge #74 (blush, chocolate and orange: don't they work well together??) and for the Belli Challenge #82- GLITTER.
This card? Well, I am in need of some serious color. We have a cloudy day, snow in the forecast (if you look closely on the grill, you can see the little white specks of flurries we are having!) I am working on my NY resolution of using stash. Found these Debbie Mumm stickers which I bought to go with a matte stack that I found on clearance. So, goals this week include using these up until gone. How many cards can I make??? What ended up being cute is that the card can be used for a girls b'day or a valentines card. This card started with the sketch at Lord Have Mercy #55, fits the Just Stamp challenge: use new stuff, Our creative corner: simple and clean, and Crazy 4 Challenges #18: polka dot fun (the little beetle and the word "dotty" is repeated on the DP as well as my sentiment).

Have a great one and thanks for peeking into my world.....
