Showers Of Blessings

I have made a card for the Classy Cards Challenge 123.  The inspiration picture was of lovely lilacs, etc.. 

I started with a lilac card base, layered it with vanilla and the rain designer paper.  When I started my card I had the cutest paper with rain, boots and clouds.  As you can tell,  I covered all of those things with the elements I added to my card. 

I cute a scalloped square from vanilla Card Stock.   The next layer was cut with the Spellbinders Decorative Curved Square die.  I sponged distress ink over it and stamped a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Showers Of Blessings stamp set.  I popped the sentiment up on the card using Joy Foam Pads.

I cut the umbrella with the Spellbinders Umbrella Trio.   The heart was made using the Memory Box Precious Hearts die.

I added the rose lace at the bottom and added pearls for the finishing touch.

Thank you for taking a look at my card today.
