Sunny Days Are Coming ...

My card is for the SSNOTIME129 and FTTC56 Challenges. One is to use a punched border and the other is to use scallops, so this fit both challenges. I'm beginning to get Spring fever and really felt the urge to make something cheerful. Yes, little umbrellas can be cheerful!

This is a white square card base. A larger white piece was cut and a scallop border was punched all around it, then placed over the front of the card base. Another piece of white was cut to fit inside the scalloped piece and stamped with a Basket Weave. A Barely Banana circle was cut with a Nest. die, as well as a white scalloped die. The BB piece was also stamped with the little raindrop in this stamp set in Versamark. It's hard to see. The umbrella was stamped in Orchid Opulence and cut out. A rhinestone tops the umbrella and a touch of Yellow Stickles were touched inside each little fun flower. This was raised with foam adhesive and placed over the umbrella handle. The yellow circle was also raised with foam adhesive. (There is a shadow behind the umbrella is not suppose to be there.)

Stamps: Scattered Showers (PTI), Basket Weave (Flourishes)
Ink: Orchid Opulence, Versamark, Pink Passion
Paper: White, Barely Banana, Memento Black
Other: Yellow Stickles, Circle and Scallop Circle Nesties, Scallop Border Punch (MS), foam adhesive
