April Showers-BBTB2 Challenge

Hello crafty friends, hope you had a wonderful, warm weekend!  As you know it is Monday and that means it is time for a new challenge over at BBTB2.  I'm hosting this weeks challenge and I've chosen an umbrella from any cartridge on any type of project.  I chose to use the Cricut cartridge Nate's ABC for my umbrella cut. This is an A2 size card, I cut my image at 4".  I used a cloud embossing folder from SU and embossed my background. I cut my grass with a Fiscars grass punch.  I didn't put a sentiment on my card because I'm not sure just yet what I will use this card for. I used glossy accents to make my boots shiny and around the water puddle as well as some rain drops on the umbrella. And that is it folks! A simple little card was done in a flash.  Now please go see what awesome inspiration my design team sisters have for you and then think about using your Cricut and join us by linking up with your umbrella project!!
