Tuesday Morning Sketches #445

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I am so glad that you did.  The newest sketch is up at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and it's a great one by Janice.

My card was actually inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.  I was talking to my sister on Sunday (we FaceTime every Sunday) and she was saying that she needed a Bridal shower card and a Wedding card.  I was looking on Pinterest and found a pretty card, I knew I wanted to use an umbrella.  I also recently applied for the Dies R Us design team (I don't know if I made it) but I thought to keep with the theme I would try to use just dies.

So here's my card, it features umbrella die (old and retired) from MFT Stamps, stitched oval dies from CC Designs, flower punch that I've had forever so it's probably from EK Success.  The stamped stripes is from a set called Brushstroke Messages by Simon Says Stamps, sentiment from a Raisin Boat sentiment set, Oatmeal Cookie ink by Fun Stampers Journey and Black and Buttermilk Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The paper is from a DCWV stack and the card stock is SU! Not Quite Navy, So Saffron and Apricot Appeal.

I hope that you like my card and that it inspires you to use some tools that you may not have used in awhile.

Thank you, again, for stopping by.  Please be sure to visit the design team - they did an amazing job.  They always do!

I'll see you over at the TMS blog.

Your card is lovely, beautiful colors brought together for such a refreshing look. The oatmeal sentiment is just perfect with everything else.

There is so much eye candy on your card - and I love the little umbrella filled with flowers! Those diagonal stripes give this a special look and feel, and it's a beautiful take on the sketch! Good luck with the DT you applied for :)

This is so very pretty Melissa, love the basket and the background. This should seal your DT place - hopefully :)
