CCMC196 & WT369

I was glancing through my Reader posts late yesterday afternoon and saw this cute, cute card from my friend Nance.  It used the sketch 196 from Create with Connie & Mary:
It made me think that I hadn’t dusted off that cute set, Easy Events, for a while, plus I needed a baby card, so I whipped this card out before heading to church for our Maundy Thursday supper:
It is a note card size….it just seemed to fit the sketch better since I didn’t have a large doily die on which to mat my circle.  I colored my image with an aquapainter and reinkers; matted it with a Certainly Celery scallop punched with the 2 3/8” scallop circle punch on which I stamped A to Z in Wild Wasabi; popped up the little umbrella; and popped up a different sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I already had a piece of embossed Pink Pirouette floating around on my desk, so I used the Adorning Accents Edgelit to make a scallop border and added another little border of Marina Mist, although if I’d had time, I would have used Bashful Blue as I think it’s a little too dark for a baby card, but that’s the color I used for the water.  I also did this because the Ways to Use It Challenge 369 at SCS yesterday was to color!!!  My favorite thing!  Edited to add:  I knew I had seen a challenge to use an umbrella on your creation but I couldn't remember it is!  The Little Red Wagon #127!
The one time of the day she’s not on the go-go-go!
