Card Recipe:
Image - Hannah on Stepping Stones by ARTish
Paper - Julianne by Kay and Co
Medium - Copic Markers
Die Cut - Spellbinders (used to make the flower)
Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls - Recollections
Lace - Offray
Felt Ribbon - Stash

Remember you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!

This particular stamp doesn't have the umbrella so I made one from a punch or two and I hope you like it.
The flower is made from 3 die cut flowers that were scored and then cut up one fold to the center and then accordion folded. You attached all three "fans" together to make the flower.
I hope you like this card and will join in with our Paper Piecing challenge.

What struck me first about this gorgeous card is the flow of the colors. They just seem to flow into one another yet each element stands on its own. Wonderful job. Absolutely sweet image. Love what you did sith the umbrella addition! Beautiful flowers, lace and great sentiment (one of my favorite old classics)!

Thanks so much for playing along with Stamping Vacation's challenges! This earns you entry in the May 1st drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate to the store of your choice!
