Make My Monday # 43

 Good Morning all and welcome to another Monday.

So today over at Make My Monday we have a new challenge.  'APRIL SHOWERS'  Anything to do with rain.  If you fancy joining in and seeing what the rest of the design team have created please do pop over using the link above or in my side bar. 

So i decided to make a get well shaker card using umbrellas and rain drops.

A5 card size.  First i die cut my umbrella's and then dry embossed using a raindrops embossing folder.  Backed the umbrella apertures with acetate and  added foam tape around each umbrella.  3 colours of micro beads and backed with pale blue pattern paper.  Iridescent sequins for water drops.  I cut the spellbinders get well sentiment twice to fit the card.  I then edged the umbrellas and card with stickles glitter glue. 

Close up of the shaker part, i added different colour micro beads to each one. Typical that we had non stop rain while i was trying to take the photos, so they are a tad dull.

Items Used:   Creative Expressions 'raindrops' embossing folder
Xcut vintage icon dies for the umbrella
Orange, purple and pink micro beads
Spellbinders delites sentiments four (SP-S2140)
Distress ink 'peacock feathers'

Thank you for stopping by, we look forward to seeing your enteries over at 

Wishing you all a wonderful week. Emma
