Ho's Challenge....the Crafty Ho's, that is.....

Sunday means another round of challenges starting up....and I decided to make a card for the Crafty Ho's Challenge that popped up this morning.  Well, a new one is up every Sunday there, but my mojo has been missing and I am now getting back in the swing of things!!

So, without further ado.......here is my card!


I kept this one pretty simple.  The stamp set is "Daydream" from Close To My Heart.  I stamped with Momento Rich Cocoa and CTMH Outdoor Denim.  The umbrella is colored with Autumn Terracotta and Twilight with a blender pen.  The paper/card stock was all from my scrap file.  I freehanded cutting around the sentiment to make it look like a cloud....a little terracotta around the edges and popping it up with dimensionals gives it a more realistic look.

Thanks for checking in!

Huggz,
April
