Lily Pad Cards Rainy Day Challenge

Hello, friends! I'd like to share my card that I'm submitting for Lily Pad Cards Rainy Day Challenge. The requirement is to use rain or anything rain related on your card. I decided to go with umbrellas. Big surprise, huh?

I love Memory Box dies, and I love umbrellas. So it was a no brainer for me to get their umbrella die. It's so cute!


I die cut three umbrellas from some cheery Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers. I wanted to create a happy card because here in Hawaii, we use the umbrella to block out the sun, more than we do the rain.


I layered the umbrellas on a piece of chevron patterned paper from Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things. The yellow paper is also from the Sketchbook line, and I purposely chose the spattered portion for a bit of interest. A touch of bling and the card was done.

Visit Lily Pad Cards for lots of inspiration from the design team, and while you're there, check out the other challenges they have going on.

Have a crafty weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
