Hello! It's been about a week since my last post, but this seems to be the beginning of my busy season so you'll probably be hearing from me a little more often for the next month or so. Weddings, graduations, and Mother's Day (oh my!) are going to keep me very busy!
Today the occasion is a wedding. A bridal shower to be exact. My co-worker asked for a special card for a friend of hers. The theme- April showers and parasols! Say no more! I knew of just the image for the occasion! This is Umbrella Love from A Day For Daisies and it is one of Sami's images (my first purchase from her collection, but definitely not my last!). This cute couple is colored in Copics with a bit of paper piecing on the umbrella. At first the requested pink and navy color scheme had me stumped, but I found some lovely papers in a couple of my My Mind's Eye pads (Moments and Lost & Found Two: Blush) that worked wonderfully! Embellishment-wise there's a little something for everyone on this card: embossing, die cuts, punches, pearls, and flowers! Not to mention a fantastic sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge! They also have an optional challenge of "Rain, Rain, Go Away" as well.
And speaking of showers, I am off now to work on some things for my brother and his fiancee's Jack & Jill shower which is Saturday! Like I said, it's going to get busy around here! I can't believe my baby brother is getting married one month from today!
