Under the Weather [PP132]


This post is for the color challenge (132) at the The Paper Players , one of my favorite challenge blogs.
 Just look at the fun colors picked by Ann.
  Starfruit was one of those colors I didn't really like at first, but now I've learned to love it and especially with Midnight Muse. Here is my card. 
All three challenge colors are found in the fun DSP. I used some midnight muse ribbon behind the primrose matted sentiment using the Bootiful Occasions set. Dimensionals were used to add interest to the focal point and the fussy snipped umbrella.  I added a few rhinestones to the umbrella which looks cute against the cloud embossed background, don't ya think? 
I hope you leave a comment and thanks for stopping by!

I'm still on the fence about Starfruit. You've pulled off this color scheme beautifully and made such a fun card with it. I'm lovin' that fussy cut umbrella with some bling!

Cute card Diane. When I first started reading, I thought maybe you weren't feeling well. I am glad it isn't the case. Cute boots to go with the umbrella. Hugs Karen
