Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today
to share my card I made for this weeks challenge
Rainy Days.

 I had a lot of fun with this card.....
first by stenciling Memory Box Texture Raindrops
onto a blue card stock using Dreamweaver Translucent Embossing Paste.

Once the paste had dried I die cut 2 large clouds from
Memory Box Cloud Bank.
I have to say, this is my "go to" die for all my clouds!

I die cut an umbrella using Spellbinders Umbrella Trio.
The umbrella was stamped with Impression Obsession Gingham Cover A card
background stamp.
I only inked a small portion for the umbrella.

I used a Versamark pen on the handle and tip of the umbrella,
then heat set it with Sparkle N Sprinkle Silver Detail embossing powder!

The umbrella was filled with Memory Box Dancing Tulips. and
Impression Obsession Grass that I cut apart.
For a bit of added textural fun,
I added a few Dew Drops Water.

Entering the following challenges:

You're such a busy card-making gal I can hardly keep up! I can't believe how much you've done since my last visit. Of course, this from a person who's lucky to manage one or two cards a week. This is one delightfully fabulous card, Diane! It's every bit as pretty as the inspiration photo. Love the pretty gingham umbrella and the tulips. Oh, so pretty!
