We're in this Together.....

Image may contain: shoes and text

Hello everyone: They say that April Showers bring May flowers but up here all we've seen is snow, shigh!! I'm just hoping that Spring comes soon with a bit warmer weather, I'm very tired of the cold, gray days and I've just about had it with snow!!
Anywho, here is the card I created for the new challenge at RETRO RUBBER, hope you get inspired to join my teammates and me in the gallery.

This image is from a 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog called "In This Together", I just love these pretty girl images all decked up and styling.
I stamped this image on watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers, the pink pattern paper is from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, the other graphic one is from my stash. I added some Rhine Stones to the opposite corners for some bling, the umbrella top was stamped on a piece of pattern paper and fussy cut then, popped up with small dimenssionals.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a 2014 Power Poppy set called Sassy Succulents, which contains some of the cutest little succulents I've seen, beautifully detailed and simply adorable.
The flower in the corner is from a retired SU set called "Fast and Fabulous" from the 2010-2011 idea book and catalog, I love the double stamping on these images.

So there you have it, I hope you got inspired to come and play along with us at the RETRO RUBBER gallery with my teammates and I, we can't wait to see what you create.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Gosh, Maria, your card is so cute! Darling image and creatively designed with super coloring and that pretty tag. You know... this is one of my favorite challenges and I haven't played in so long. I'll give it some thought.

Such a supportive message all wrapped up in that pretty image of the girls sharing the umbrella. You've made an inspiring card from the inspiration photo, Maria.

This is so cute Maria, I love the fat that you popped out the umbrella and that image is awesome, with the little dog too. I'm a big fan of tags, so I like how you used one here. Cx
