April Showers - Card with Umbrella

I made the following card for my mother in law. I haven't seen her in a while so the sentiment from "Stamps Of Life by Stephanie Barnard" was so appropriate.  I used plain cardstock that I misted with Perfect Pearls Mists in mint and I distressed the edges with Jim Holtz Distress Ink in peacock feathers. The patterned paper is from DCWV the Whimsy Stack and the umbrella was cut from Cricut Alphabet.







I entered this card in the following Challenges.
