My Umbrella




The week is flying by and I still haven't used Karen Giron's sketch for her Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge until now. This card is also for Paper Cutz Challenge to use metal ( I used brads) and for the Pile it On challenge to use cute children. I just love October Afternoon's Thrift Shop DP which I combined with PTI's Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss and Distressed Dots papers. I paper-pieced the image and colored parts of it with Copics. My sewing machine is VERY old and it is not cooperating with me! Thankfully, most of the stitching was covered up - lol!
STAMPS: Pure Innocence 'My Umbrella' by MFT
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Circle & Lacey Circle Nesties, Word window punch (SU), Grass die (MFT), Brads
