I wanted to play along with a couple of challenges today! The first was the "Up in the Clouds" theme challenge over at Paper Issues. I have a cute cloud embossing folder from Darius that I picked up in San Diego this Christmas. I thought this umbrella would look fun paper pieced and popped up on top of the embossed clouds.
The Deconstructed Sketch #94 was the main inspiration behind my layout. I decided to elongated the side panels and added the oval shape to the bottom of the layout as the sentiment.
I also wanted to play along with Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge, it is their Umbrella stamp set called "Sunnier Days" that I used. I was drawn to the Snap "Colour Vibe" Paper from Simple Stories.
