A day for Umbrellas...

Susan's One Layer Challenge this week is to use ribbon. She said only one piece of ribbon; I said "these ribbons are so skinny, I need to use 3 of them"!! It's a rainy, miserable day today, so umbrellas were the perfect stamp to reach for for this card.



Supplies:
Paper: PTI white
Ink: Palette hybrid noir
Stamps: A muse
Accessories: ribbon (May Arts), MM paper piercer, copics


I stamped the umbrellas using my SAMJ, grounded them with 3 ribbons, added some piercing and a sentiment. For the sake of simplicity, I resisted the urge to add some raindrops. Hope you like it...and hope you try out Susan's latest challenge.

Lovin' the ribbons almost as much as the umbrellas! Great card! It's never going to stop raining here. I should put up my paper and glue and get out my boat building tools!
