Rainy Day

I think I may have taken a little artistic licence with this week's theme from CD Sunday  - Rainy Days. It doesn't look as if this umbrella has ever seen a drop of water!

This image is from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD. I slightly recoloured it in My Craft Studio and printed it onto photo paper. The frame is a Docrafts Triboss embossing folder, embossed on Coredinations card, trimmed down and sanded. The backing paper was free with Making Cards magazine. The sentiment is a Unity stamp and I think it would work as a 'thinking of you' card for someone having a difficult time.

As well as CD Sunday, I'd like to enter this for:
Dream Valley Challenges Anything goes
Clear it out challenge  Red

I really like this. The slight recolouring of the image to tone in with the card and papers works so well and it is perfect for our challenge this week.
