A little umbrella challenge

Hello blogland!  I've got a sweet little card to share with you today that I did for this week's umbrella challenge at Cuttin' and Stampin'.  As you may have seen, my go-to style tends to be Clean and Simple but I really wanted to try and go outside my comfort zone on this challenge and layer it all you can see, didn't happen, I'm just not good at that. So here's version #2 of my little card:

I used a kraft cardstock base that I embossed with a swiss dot pattern, sort of looks like little raindrops and added some dimension. Instead of just stamping my umbrella images, I used some white embossing powder on some papaya cardstock then fussy cut them out and popped them up a little. A little piece of vintage lace as a border and a sentiment - boom, this little card is all set to go to a friend having surgery next week.
Supplied used:
kraft cardstock
a.muse studio papaya cardstock
white embossing powder
Memento mocha ink
swiss dot embossing folder
a.muse studio All For Love and Contemporary Greetings Stamp Sets
I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge. Go to Cuttin and Stampin Challenge Blog to enter your creation. I can't wait to see them! Don't forget to get your own A Muse Products (and you won't be disappointed!)
