For my card, I decided to play along with the challenge at Friday Mashup, to use either umbrellas or polka dots. I went with both. I'm also linking to The Challenge where polka dots are the theme.
On my white cardbase, I stamped the polka dot strip in Audrey Blue down the left side of the card. I then stamped the sentiment in black. Then I used my Misti to stamp my umbrella and its components onto the die-cut before popping it up with foam tape on the card base.
The umbrella was painted with clear Wink of Stella, which you can't see in the photo. Some blue sequins and I was all done. In hindsight, I possibly should have made the polka dot strip wider, but it's done and I ain't doing it again!
