A Bridal Shower Card

Yesterday, I came home to a box full of Stampin Up goodies! Most of my order was paper, but I got some exciting new stamp sets, a couple embossing folders and lots of ribbon. In fact, I used one of my new stamp sets in my card today :)

I decided to play along with the new Retro sketches challenge and the Friday Mashup this week. I also used part of the Colour Q colour combo. I was too late to enter this card in the challenge, but I just loved the colours that I decided to play along anyway, leaving out one of the colours, Blushing Bride.

And here's my card...

I love the challenge this week at Friday Mashup! Umbrellas made me think of the new stamp set called "Rain or Shine" from the Spring Mini Catalogue. I made sure that was on my last order and it arrived just in time :)  I love the umbrella! And, as you can see, I matched it with the polka-dot designer paper. I added a yellow button and bakers twine to embellish the card, and embossed a stitched design next to the sentiment (it may be a little easier to see in the photos below).

Thanks for stopping by!
