Cheer Up, Buttercup! - CPS 113

My new favorite thing is sketch challenges!  I checked out the CPS Sketch for this week and saw this card right away.  That little zig-zaggy design just said tumbling umbrellas to me! :) I couldn't wait to share this card with you!

This is another long card (4" by 8") mostly to accommodate those umbrellas!  The card base is PTI's Aqua Mist, followed by another strip of Aqua Mist with embossed raindrops.  I used the clear Filigree Detail Embossing Powder that PTI carries to emboss those cute little raindrops. 

The umbrellas are stamped in Summer Sunrise and cut out.  The handles are Dark Chocolate.  The sentiment was also stamped in Dark Chocolate.  I rounded the corners and added some buttercup rhinestones.  I am really pleased with this one!  Seems I have good luck with Scattered Showers, as I've loved using it (and loved the results!). 

Hope you all have a great evening!  I might need one of those umbrellas around here when I head out of work, as they are calling for thunderstorms.  Maybe things will cool down a little!

Thanks for stopping by - I appreciate it!
