Simply Crafts April Challenge

.Pam and Glora of Simply-Crafts Challenge have announced the challenge for this month on their blog.  The challenge is the umbrella cut  from the Paisley Cricut cartridge.  If you don't have this cartridge, you can make any project with a umbrella on it.
My submission for this challenge is an A2 size card.  The card base is Recollections Kraft Cardstock.  Background mat, cut at 4 by 5 1/4, is from a KI Memories Spring mat stack that I have had for a few years.   The umbrella was cut at 3 1/4 inches.  All the flowers on the bottom of the card are flower cuts from The Paisley Cartridge that I cut in various sizes from one half inch to 1 inch.  The green mat was emblossed using the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  

The sentiment, Celebrate Spring, is from Mary at Cardztv's Think Spring Stamp Set.

I really hope you get a chance to participate in this challenge.  This card was a lot of fun to make.Come on out and join us in the fun!
