One More Go

Things got off to a slow start with me and The Card Concept Challenge. The theme, as you know, is "Umbrella." A very focused theme, and a true challenge! Before I made my first card (see this post), I did lots of thinking. Then Voila! Ping! Another card popped right into my brain! This second card of mine still has an umbrella, but this one is even more "out of the box!"




It makes me chuckle...




A teeny-tiny drink umbrella in a tropical drinky-pooh. If I hadn't stamped the umbrella on a smidge of dp and fussy cut it, it would be a one-layer card. Neenah white base, the stars, sentiment and umbrella are stamps from Skipping Stones, and the glass is from Clear and Simple stamps. SU black ink, Studio G aqua and pink inks, and MME Smoke ink. I traced the stars with my Wink of Stella, then sprinkled some MS glitter on them. 

Tomorrow marks a fun blog hop over at Pretty Pink Posh. I'm hoping to add the graphic to my sidebar but will also make a clickable link within this post. Very excited for Paulina about this. She's one of the sweetest crafters in blogland. It's all about making Sequin Shakers, and Paulina will have a linky-widget for us all to post our creations on her blog! She's got tons of sponsors, and prizes! The hop runs from tomorrow beginning at 6 a.m., PST, and goes until 11:55 p.m., PST on Monday April, 28th. Be sure to get your creative juices flowing and join in the fun!
