Avery Elle AEI♥U January Challenge


This month's challenge at Avery Elle is a photo inspiration.
Here's the photo that caught my eye--because of the umbrella.


And here's my card.


I used the pennants from Avery Elle's To the Point and stamped
some pieces of My Mind's Eye Love Me papers.

My hubby thought it looked a little too somber with the grays
so I tried to make it cheerier with some ink splatters.
Did I succeed?

You have until Sunday, February 3rd to link up your cards
over at Avery Elle.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
