Addicted to CAS # 133

Tomorrow is April 1 and you know what that means.  Besides April Fool's Day and Easter I mean.  It means April showers bring May flowers and so as your host for this challenge at Addicted to CAS, I chose as our code word:
After I chose it I had trouble deciding what to do.  I had a number of ideas that I tried out but they just didn't work right.  Persistence paid off and I ended up with a card I'm happy with.
I used my MFT stencil to first put down some Stormy Sky Distress Ink and then went over it with translucent texture paste.  If you zoom in you may see the shine.  The umbrella is also from MFT cut in two layers of white, one of gray and one of DSP with a little silver added to the handle.  Then came the difficult part - sentiment.  Most of the ones I could have used were too big to keep the card CAS.  I ended up with this one from PB - sort of a double entendre. 

The Design Team and I look forward to see what you do with the code word.  You could win a $20 voucher from the Happy Little Stamper store if you enter a card in the gallery.

  1. Such a sweet card, and so appropriate for spring. Although today they are calling for 1-3" of the sloppy stuff....grrrrr! I love that you put the texture past on the raindrops, PERFECT. I really like this card, well done!

  11. Bobby, your persistence certainly did pay off. I love how you angled the umbrella and the paper piecing is gorgeous. I also love how you sponged the raindrops to force the eye to the umbrella. Fabulous card
