Stamp Gathered Blooms with Olive Grove and emboss it with detail clear powder.  Color it with Peerless Watercolors.  Cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Layer.  Cut the umbrellas from Distressed Dots and Gingham Signature Patterns.  Cut the handles from silver mirror cardstock.  Trim a bit from the top of the long handle.

Here's a tip that makes it easy to attach the umbrella - place the handle on the background and attach a foam dot over it.  Attach the umbrella top over the foam dot.  The handle is securely attached and the foam dot adds a bit of dimension

Attach some sequins - and coordinate your card with a matching Squash Envelope.

Cute card, Jean. The little umbrella die is adorable and now on my wish list!

I am not good at visualizing how something can look. The delicate flowers on the stamp are so pretty using bright spring colors.
