Thoughts of You Rain or Shine - The Friday Mashup 95

This week the challenge with The Friday Mashup here is a color one.  Lisa, one of the designers is thinking spring, and what is more spring-like than rain and umbrellas.
The colors:  Raspberry ripple, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive - perfect for what I had in mind.  Although from the sounds of the weather report for tomorrow I don't think we'll get out the umbrellas just quite yet.  More likely shovels - as we're expecting up to 25 cm of snow.
But for this card I'm thinking Spring.  Here it is:

 
 
Each of the umbrellas were stamped and then cut out - so were the handles.  Because I only have the new ink pad for the Raspberry Ripple, the color saturation for the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive is not as bright as I would have liked. They were attached to the card using dimensionals.
 
Stamp:  Rain or shine
Inks: Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Papers: Raspeberry Ripple, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Accessories: 1/4" Raspberry ripple stitched satin ribbon, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, word window punch, Cloudy Day folder,dimensionals, Itty Bitty flower punch, Owl Builder Punch (center of flower)

Love the umbrellas, they are a great way to incorporate the colors!

I'm definitely not thinking of or ready for spring :) I'd be more than happy to have snow all year round!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!

We're expected snow in the NE too... great to have a Spring card during this impending "doom". :) Love how these colors look so great and bright for the umbrellas - great choice of sets. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
