Under the Weather?

Pin It

Good morning!  When Jen posted her latest Deconstructed Sketch, I knew I had to play along right away - this layout is right up my alley!  This past MFT Teaser week flew by and I didn't have a chance to play with the new Umbrella stamp set and Die-namics, so now is my chance.  I layered the umbrella Die-namics with a kraft base and white cardstock topper and then added the Flower Trio & Leaf Trio Die-namics to the side.

I also used the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics and Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics as accents underneath the main image.  

The inside is CAS style - I cut out another umbrella set and then stamped the sentiment underneath.  The patterned paper is Miss Caroline Dolled Up by My Mind's Eye. 

Here are the Die-namics I used this morning:
