Under My Umbrella - Jitterbuggin'
I made this card for the Jitterbuggin' Challenge this week! Sherri's sketch was fabulous and the rules were as follows: use black and white with one accent color - (mine was blue my favorite color), use a punch (I don't have any since I have my cricut but I did use a die for some squares so I hope that counts) and use your cricut while following the sketch. I had been checking out the Frosted Designs website today too and thought I would combine the two for both challenges since their rules were to use a song lyric.
The card itself is a 6x6 cut on white card stock. I also cut the black and white square at a 5 and 3/4. The image of the child with the umbrella is from Nursery Rhymes. He has a goose with him, but I cut that out - didn't think it fit. I also used Indie Art for the rain drops and welded two shadows together for the layered raindrops. The sentiment is computer generated. Once I layered the images using Sherri's sketch I thought the card needed a little more. I took some sparkly blue brads and added three to the corner of the child's image, and then added some sparkly Stickles to the rain drops and the drips on the umbrella.
