Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 16

Check out Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge here. I look forward to her weekend challenge every Friday!! I am super thrilled with how this turned out. I finally broke down and cut up that Crate paper...it's my favorite design but I have another full sheet saved, LOL. From that I got my color inspiration.

Some small details. I decorated the umbrella with a white gel pen. My other one ran out and I have been waiting for my order to come in so I could use it again. How cute are those brads? I found them at my local scrapbook store and squealed when I saw they were raindrops. I knew I wanted to use them with this bella. It's hard to see in the big pic but the sunshine oval is covered in Crystal Effects. I don't know why, but I've been using that on everything lately. I wanted it to look like she was walking through a puddle :) This card just make me happy. Thanks for the inspiration Beate and thanks for the bella image Colleen!!

Supplies:
Stamps: Billybootabella (Stampingbella), Sending you sunshine (A Muse), Canvas
Paper: Crate paper, Ruby Red, Bashful Blue, Black
Ink: Black
Other: Circle & Oval Coluzzle, Crystal Effects, raindrop brads, Signo white gel pen, pop dot, Celery grosgrain, black/ruby red marker for faux stitching
