Busy Weekend and a Inspired by the Little Things #62

Happy Sunday!! This weekend was pretty busy with family. My nephew had a high school graduation party on Saturday and today we went to a memorial mass for my step-grandmother, and then out to breakfast with my sister's family. Now I need a nap!!

Today I am playing with Inspired by the Little Things Challenge #62. They are taking a break for the summer so I wanted to make sure that I did this challenge. I took the inspiration photo kind of literally.

Can you tell what I was inspired by now looking at the image?

I used Pretty Pink Posh's Rainy Days” and Rainy Days Additions” stamp sets for my card.There is a ton of masking that I could not have done without my MISTI tool.

I chose to use the houndstooth umbrella because it is one of my FAVORITE patterns. Who doesn't like a nice houndstooth scarf or pair of pants? They are a classic. With a little color-WOW!! (You might not think so but I do!!)

I then die cut the panel using My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints #27 and mounted it on some MFT “Lemon Drop” Card Stock, using fun foam. I completed the card by adhering some clear sequins in various sizes and added a dot of Diamond” Stickles for some added shine.

Well that is all from me. Have a fabulous night!!

Nora, great job on mirroring the inspiration! If I didn't use a beach umbrella I was going to use this same stamp set! Your card will certainly brighten someone's day! Thanks for joining us!
