Just Us Girls #23 - Sketch Challenge

Here's the card I created for the most recent sketch challenge over at Just Us Girls! I used a couple of my new stamps from DeNami Design for this one (the raindrops and the umbrella)---LOVE THEM!!! I seem to be on a roll with rain-themed cards these days...funny considering it's snowing like crazy at my house right now! Ha!

I stamped the umbrellas on kraft and patterned paper and then pieced them together. I used Pearlescent Sky Blue ink to stamp the raindrops and then colored the centers with a Copic Sketch Marker. Here's a close-up:

And how about those buttons!! I created those with my new Embossed Button Punch (Martha Stewart)! Here's a close-up:

Well, I have to get a few things done around the house before I venture out into this snowy weather to attend CPR training. We're starting to gear up for our youth summer camp, so lots of meetings and trainings going on these days.

Thank you so much for all of your super sweet comments!!! It really brightens my day to see those in my inbox! 

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

I have yet to attempt to learn to tie a proper cute bow like that. Maybe one day? :-)

I love this card. The buttons are great. This is such a cheery card.
Thank you for the sweet comment on my card. I can use all the advice I can get on taking pictures of the cards. How did you get the frame around your pictures on your blog? I love the rain boots in your last post.
