PP383 - A Theme Challenge from Jaydee & March Technique Challenge~Weather Together Stampin UP

Today I made this card using 2 embossing folders.  One for the tulips and one for the clouds.  I colored everything in with my markers, trying to stay inside of embossed lines is quite difficult for me, but easier then trying to sponge them. The markers just give it a much bolder color.  I also used my Stampin up weather together set for the umbrellas.  I die cut them out after stamping and then spruced them up a bit with a silver sparkle strip.  I think it turned out cute and springy.  I like to think the umbrellas are protecting the delicate tulips from the spring rains. 
I'm going to submit this card to: 
I also wanted to mention that on my last post you can find here you will be able to see a few of our daughter's wedding pictures and our son-in-law.  Along with a few pictures of our son riding.  Always fun to watch him, a bit nerve wracking for a mama.. but nevertheless Extreme sport BMX  is fun to watch.   Keeps me praying that's for sure. 
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.  I hope you will take a moment and look around at my other cards, projects and pictures.  I'd love to have you sign up and follow my blog and my facebook page
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.

  3. The umbrellas are very cute. I was interested to read that the tulips had been embossed - I was sure that you had stamped them! You got such rich colour using this method. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players.

  4. You used embossing folders in a fun way and combining the two is brilliant. Thanks for joining us at TSOT.
