Friends Are Your Umbrella

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  It has been pouring down rain here for the last three days and it sure is gloomy, not to mention sopping!  It's hard to feel like doing anything when it is so dark all day!  However, I did manage to make a quick card to showcase one of the new sets Paulette has added to her Create With TLC store.  It's very appropriate for the weather we've been having, that's for sure!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned papers are from one of my favorite Basic Grey collections, Hello Luscious.  The main image is from the Friends Are Your Umbrella Digi set from Create With TLC.  You can find it Paulette's store here.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added metal accents to the umbrella with my Silver Letraset Metallic marker and Yellow Stickles to the flower centers. The image was cut out with my Cameo.  The sentiment is from the same digi set.  Three Wild Orchid Crafts flowers finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to have some time to visit your blogs tomorrow morning before I head out.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Basic Grey Challenges #87 (your favorite; I used my favorite Hello, Luscious paper)
