SHINE

Happy Monday!

Here in my little Texas town, we are having a very rainy day, so I thought I would make a cheerful card for you today.

I am playing along with Make It Monday #168 at PaperTrey Ink's blog.  

Ashley Cannon Newell has a video on baby wipe stamping today, so I thought I would give it a try too.  You can see the video right here.

After I made my umbrella, I decided my card needed to be more cheery than rainy, so it became a shaker card with bright sequins.  I just couldn't resist!!

You have all week to play along too, so be sure to click here for the link to upload YOUR fun card.

See you tomorrow.

Really cute card Susie. How did you do your umbrella? Did you use markers to make small dots? I really like the card and it is cheery.

That umbrella is so FUN!! I love the shaker card and how you matted it on black card stock. Great job with the technique.

Doesn't get much 'cheerier ' than this! Gorgeous fun colors together!

Very interesting card! I love you umbrella background and your shaker card to cheer things up! (am curious who make that umbrella die - like the outline design). Very nice take on the challenge.

Such a sweet card. I have yet to master a shaker card probably cause I have only tried it once. Very cute.
