An Umbrella Card

For My Sheri Crafts design team post, please click Here or scroll down!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a card made for a few challenges. The 5" x 7" card is cut from white Colorbok cardstock. I enjoy working with this pretty patterned K&Company Watercolor Boquet Die-Cut Mat Pad. The die-cut mat is 4.75" x 6.75" and I thought it would be perfect for my card.
Cricut Cartridge:
Paisley - Page 48. Using the main image and the image on shift, the umbrella is cut 3". I chose not to use all the layers because I wanted a pretty floral umbrella.
Flower Shoppe - Page 13 - Flower. I used the scallop 1, 2, and 4 images and it was cut at 1.875 in Cricut Craft Room.
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots on the white mat.

Other supplies:
Creative Memories - Oval Mats 
Stamps - My Craft Spot "Friends & Neighbors" Inside and Out. I won this stamp set recently at one of Kimberly's challenges! I just love this set of stamps! Perfect for inside and out! Thanks again Kimberly for your kindness!
Recollections -Pink Rhinestones
Ribbon - From my friend! Thanks!
Inking - VersaMagic Gingerbread
Martha Stewart - Daisy Corner Punch used on the inside white mat.
