April showers

This card features a little paper piecing to get the bright colors on the umbrella. The image is by Crafty Sentiments, with some very light pencil coloring. The flowered ribbon is from my stash.
Random thought: I like the difference in dot patterns on the blue vs. the green paper, compared to two papers with identical dot patterns.

This card is for these challenges:
Sugar Pea Mix it Up Challenges #30 -- (inspiration photo of bright umbrellas)
Double D Challenge -- brights
Catch the Bug -- theme: Raining Cats and Dogs
Ribbon Girl -- Card challenge
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- Hip hop

Word Art Wednesday #278 -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper
