Umbrella, (ella, ella)

Hi everyone.  Another card for you today with an image I've just been longing to play with for a while now and just not got round to it til now.

Initially intended to enter this into last weeks challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's using the sketch but unfortunately I wasn't organised enough and missed the date - booo hoooo.  Luckily, this weeks challenge there, is,...... Anything Goes - yaaaayyyyyyyyy.

 I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Sassy Cheryl - Anything Goes (am doing my happy dance lol)
Craft Your Passion - Water, Water Everywhere
Paper Make Up - Water
The Paper Girls - April Showers Bring May Flowers
Paper Pretties - April Showers Bring May Flowers

The sentiment is a clear stamp which I inked with blue StaZon.  I admit the middle part of the sentiment looks a little pale and maybe even a little smudgy - OBVIOUSLY that was a deliberate design feature as if it had been sat in a puddle, adding to the charm of the card, lmao.   Craftings turned me into Pinocchio rofl.

I do hope you like the card, flaws and all lol.  Thanks so much for droppin' by, I really appreciate it.  take care and happy crafting.
