Umbrella to dance in the rain

I made this card when I first saw The Card Concept #8 challenge but thought it was too late to enter.  Boy, oh boy, was I glad to see that I still had time.  This card is a morph card.  I started with the umbrella stamp but didn't like the way it looked. I used the die to cut it out, nope, still didn't like it up again the blue watercolor background.  Okay, then I had a grand thought to trim it, yikes! I ended up using just the die.  I am not 100% on it, but it works.  My in house critic (my daughter) loved it.  I normally make clean and simple, but this is clean and layered.

Since I am depleting my stash, I am trying not to add any new embellishments.  This may be a shock to some, but I purchased my first card of enamel dots.  I've had them for months and used them for the first time on this card.  I am thinking that I am not an enamel dot lover (but I do love sequins) and probably won't be getting many more of them.


  1. The polka dots peeping out from behind your panel look so sweet and co-ordinate perfectly with your umbrella.

  2. We think this is super cute! Love the green & blue combo. Good luck on depleting your stash!

  3. This is such fun card. Thank you so much for sharing with us the Card Concept!
