DeNami Design Color Challenge #2

Happy Friday, everyone! I had the best time today getting inky with a couple of my blog friends!!! I even managed to be somewhat productive and created a card for the most recent challenge over at DeNami Design!!!

Here are the colors for the challenge:

And here's my creation:

The idea was to create a parade of umbrellas dancing in the rain. I created some background paper with Polka Dot Basics (PTI), stamped the umbrellas (DeNami Design) onto the polka dot paper, stamped them again on solid colored cardstock, cut all of the pieces out, and then mixed and matched them across the front of the card.

I stamped the raindrops (DeNami Design) in aqua and then colored them in with Copic Sketch Markers.

My sweet friend whom I was stamping with just happened to have the perfect sentiment (by DeNami Design)!!! I added a bow...some bling...and voila! So what do you think?

And finally, a photo of what I came home to this evening: 

Believe it or not there is a mountain side beyond our deck but thanks to the white-out you can't see it ;) Anyone else out there STILL experiencing winter on May 14th?

Hope you have something extra fun planned for the weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
