It's Raining!

Hi Everyone,

again, I lucked out combining challenges...
As soon as I saw the inspiration picture over at Inkspirational I knew I needed to play with them. and then things just fell into place.
Less is More wants lots of white space, but no white
Just us Girls wants raindrops
and Sparkle and Shine offers an umbrella, although theirs has colorful polka dots, oh well, mine does not.


Here is that cool photo:


I took that cool umbrella stamp from Joy Clair, did some masking and sponging on grey card stock. The raindrops are by Impression obsession and the sentiment is by Papertrey.


So, what  do you think - is that a perfect coincidence???


It's not raining now, but its coming - so - keep stamping!

Don't you just love it when that happens? The most perfect card for the challenges. The bold yellow and black photo inspiration is so striking and no wonder you wanted to join in. Absolutely fabulous take and would never have thought to start on the grey card, so thank you for the inspiration x Great sentiment too.
