Muse Challenge #5

Happy Wednesday to you all. The week is half over and I just realized that I haven't done my Muse Challenge card for this week so I thought I better get on it.  If you aren't familiar with the Muse challenge then hop on over to their blog and check it out. The inspiration for my card today came from Marion Vagg's card below.


I loved the way Marion used strips of patterned paper to create this bright and cheery background on her card. I thought I would give this a try using some PTI patterned paper from the Green Boutique Collection. I am really loving the Umbrella4You and Clouds2Cut stamp sets from The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnard. Each stamp set has dies to match and they are just the cutest! If you become a TSOL Club Member you get 15% off everything you order and you get an adorable stamp set delivered to your doorstep every month. It's so much fun. :)



I stamped the "Rain or Shine" sentiment in PTI Hawaiian Shores ink on SU Whisper White cs that was die cut with TSOL Couds2Cut die and the sentiment on the inside of the card says "You're a friend of mine" So sweet. I stamped the umbrella with SU Gumball Green ink and cut it out using TSOL Umbrella Die. I thought it needed a little something extra so I cut some patterned paper and adhered it to the umbrella and added a few Turquoise Rhinestones by Mark Richards that I purchased at Michael's. The finishing touch was the bow made from PTI's Hawaiian Shores Saddle-Stitched ribbon and a SU Green Flower Button from my stash. Hope you like it *wink*  Have a blessed week and thanks so much for stopping by.
