Weekly Challenge # 8 - Saturday

Challenge: Use an umbrella.
(it does not have to be an A Muse stamp set)
Dates: February 26, 2013 through March 4, 2013

Hi everyone, Doris here from Mom's Been Scrappin with another project for
this week's challenge to use an umbrella in your project. As you may have seen, my go-to style tends to be Clean and Simple but I really wanted to try and go outside my comfort zone on this challenge and layer it all you can see, didn't happen, I'm just not good at that. So here's version #2 of my little card:

I used a kraft cardstock base that I embossed with a swiss dot pattern, sort of looks like little raindrops and added some dimension. Instead of just stamping my umbrella images, I used some white embossing powder on some papaya cardstock then fussy cut them out and popped them up a little. A little piece of vintage lace as a border and a sentiment - boom, this little card is all set to go to a friend having surgery next week.
Supplied used:
kraft cardstock
a.muse studio papaya cardstock
white embossing powder
Memento mocha ink
swiss dot embossing folder
a.muse studio All For Love and Contemporary Greetings Stamp Sets
