Sorry You're Feeling Under The Weather

I made this card for a friend who's not feeling too good at the moment.

I used two stitched square dies to die cut a frame from a snippet of white card.  I placed the card blank and frame into my MISTI so I could see where to position the stamps.  I removed the frame and stamped the umbrella and sentiment with black ink before embossing them with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the umbrella onto three small snippets of patterned paper (the outer sections onto pink paper and the middle section onto purple spotty paper).  I fussy cut them just inside the stamped outline and then paper pieced them into the umbrella.  I used a purple pencil to colour the umbrella handle.  To finish I attached the frame with foam tape.

    To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Crafter's Companion 'Sweet Florals' stamps
     Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' die
     Versafine Onyx black ink
     Faber-Castell coloured pencil
     Cosmic Shimmer clear detail embossing powder
     Snippets of white card and pink paper and purple spot paper

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
     CAS on Friday - Feel Better
     Love to Scrap - Anything Goes
     Snippets Playground - Challenge 419

I love the interpretation of an open umbrella for this 'under the weather' card Kath, and love the purple and pink for the umbrella and shown off beautifully with the stitched square frame. This is sure to make your friend smile and cheer her up. x
