Raining Challenges

Hi All!

Hope you're enjoying your day. It's a cloudy day here with rain on the way, so in other words, a great day for stamping! I've made a card using a few of this week's challenges and thought I'd share that with you before making my daughter lunch.

Here's my card...

Since it suppose to rain, I thought I'd make use of my Rainy Day Emma stamp and I paired her with this grassy hill image that my friend Erin shared with me yesterday. I did some paper piecing on the umbrella and dress as well as popping up the umbrella to make a 3D look. I added some bubble stickers for rain and accented this card with felt flowers, twine, and a button. The sentiment is on a pull out tag with different ribbon embellishments and a jumbo eyelet.

This card qualifies for the challenges at Charisma Cardz which was "diamonds are a girls best friend", I only used one little diamond on Emma's necklace, so I hope this still counts. Cute Card Thursday which was Tag You're It, which my pull out sentiment tag covers. Then at Simon Says Stamp which are celebrating a blogoversary and we were asked to create a birthday or celebration card. Lili of the Valley is asking for paper piecing and lastly, Pile It On, which asked for the use of at least 2 ribbons as well as combining with other challenges!

So five challenges, not too bad! Thanks for stopping on by today, I'm off to visit you all now and see what you've been up to lately and then it's time for some lunch. Have a great afternoon, happy stamping! :)
