Flowery Umbrella

I created a card for the Retro Rubber Challenge as well as the Sisterhood of Crafters. I had an idea in my head for a couple of days and today it fell into place.

I used SU Umbrella to Stamp from 2020 for the stamping. The patterned paper is Carte Bella Flower Market with a date of 2019 on the back. The scallop square is a Sizzix die and the stitching is an Only Die from The Stamps of Life. I placed the items on the square, then decided something was missing, so off the items came. Then I ran the scallop square through the die cutting machine again to add the stitching. Sometimes it is nice to have so many dies to choose from and have the perfect one waiting to be used. I think this is the first time I have used this Only die. Without that die, I would have placed a rubber mat on the stitching die so it wouldn’t cut through. The gems are SU very retired, but the color worked. I think there is one pearl left in the pack of that yellow color.

The Retro Rubber Challenge is a tic tac toe and I used the far right column: patterned paper, bling, ribbon or twine.

The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge is April Showers bring May Flowers. That is where the umbrella with the boots came to mind. I filled both with flowers. The umbrella was punched with the matching punch. Both were fun challenges and it was fun to combine them.
