Sophie and her Umbrella

If you are looking for my Crafting When We Can Challenge, please scroll down!

It is the 15thof the month and that means we get to show off another Dueling Darlings challenge. 

For February, LJ and Darlene are the Darlings who came up with the challenge and theme for the teams this month.  LJ is a Diva and Darlene is one of the Dazzlers.  This is what LJ wrote for our team as the challenge:

Our theme this month is Umbrellas! Believe it or not, National Umbrella Day is February 10th. Darlene and I thought it would be fun to think spring. since we have seen too much white stuff this winter
I love the cute image LJ sent and I think she bought it at Creative Pals one of the times she visited me!  She also sent along some great embellishments and I wanted to use each of them. I did layer the lace over one of the pieces of ribbon--layers are good!

Here is the inside of my card:

Image/Sentiment:  Whipper Snapper Designs-Sophie

Cardstock/Patterned Paper:  Recollections White; Stampin' Up Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette; Echo Park Paper-Hello Summer Patterned Paper

Ink:  Memento Black

Accessories:  Copic Markers; So Saffron Ribbon with White Lace on top; Yellow button with Yellow Baker's Twine; White Bow

Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. All of the blogs are on the left sidebar of my blog. I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful cards that have been created this month!
