Under my Umbrella!
As I wrote that I thought of the Rhianna song. Living with a teenager will do that to ya!  I got this card idea from one I saw on the exclusive website for Stampin' Up! demonstrators; Stampin' Connection.  I featured this card during my Card Class in February and at a workshop last month.  Here are a few tips:
  1. The white cardstock is double layered; a bottom layer as the card base and another that measures 4"x4" that I embossed with the Cloudy Day folder. It's mounted on Dimensionals to the base for added depth.
  2. After I stamped the images and mounted the umbrella top I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to pierce a heart around the umbrella. 
  3. Markers were used to color in the words.
