CFC72--Toot Your Own Horn


CASual Fridays has come up with the funnest challenge--Toot Your Own Horn. 
Create a clean and simple project inspired by your blog header. 
 How can you resist joining the fun?

Of course I used umbrellas, and here's my card.


I paper pieced the umbrella from Paper Smooches with scrap pieces of patterned paper 
and added some shading on each with Copics. I reached for one of my favorite sentiments from Paper Smooches, rounded off the corners, and the card was done.

If you don't have a blog, you can still join the challenge by using 
CASual Fridays' blog header as your inspiration. 

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Edited to add: Three umbrellas is the literal definition of my last name, Mikasa.
In Japanese mi = three; kasa = umbrella
