Hello friends
You may have already seen this card if you are a member
of the social media world - Facebook, Twitter etc.
I created it for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L,
taking part in their blog hop with Avery Elle stamps.
I've used Grand Squares to layer the card, opted for a combination of grey and bright pink -
(grey skies with the brightness of one bright pink brolly!)  Card is Papermill.

I liked the idea of using crystal gems to represent the rain.
The tag is Back to Basics Tags.
A simple design enhanced with dimension using 3D Foam Squares.
The full blog post is here.

Enjoy your Saturday, I'm getting ready for my Create A Flower class at The Artistic Stamper
in Faversham tomorrow so I will be in the shop all day, call in if you are passing.

Take care friends.

Morning Christine,
What a great card for somebody going through a tough time, if it's for a man change the pink brolly for a blue one. Good idea for the gems too.
Have a good day in your shop.

This is a lovely card. Layering can make so much difference to the overall effect. The umbrella is a nice simple shape to cut out and I can think of several occasions where it might be appropriate.
