I have recently received a digital stamp, and I am trying them out.  This is something new for me.  This umbrella, from CDAC, is a stamp they sent me. This is what I created with that stamp.

I sized the umbrella to 3 inches, then colored it with my Copic markers.  I added the dots with pearl drops.  The background paper is from a paper pack of Recollections.  I found an old pack of dried flowers, which were perfect for this card.  I placed some glue on the background paper, and then added my dried flowers to it.  Then I placed the umbrella over them, making the umbrella bulge with all the flowers. For my corners, I took a Spellbinders die and some blue glitter paper and cut it in half. 


Here is the inside of the card.  I gave it to my Mom for Mother's Day.  


Please leave a comment to let me know your thoughts about this card...what you liked and what could be changed.  I am trying to get better at what I do.  Thanks.


Now go on to Nicoles Blog to see what fabulous thing she has created for you.
