This week, the talented Anne Marie is hosting our theme challenge.  She has selected Sunshine & Rainbows for us.  How fun is that!

I will be the first to admit that my collection of sunshine and rainbows stamps is nearly non-existent.  However, I do have the adorable Under My Umbrella stamp set. It’s always a fun one to ink up. What about you? I can’t wait to see what you create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is so quick and easy, yet has a “cute factor” that will be sure to brighten up anyone’s day. The Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder, along with the Daffodil Delight ruched ribbon, provides such yummy texture.  A Stitched So Sweetly rectangle is the perfect backdrop for the Daffodil Delight gingham umbrella.

To coordinate with the leaves on the flowers, I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive.  A few Champagne Rhinestones add a touch of bling.
