No Embellies???

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

Here is a card I created for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge from yesterday, MTSC77!!! What a fun sketch!!!

For my card, I used Umbrella Circle by Stamping Bella, and I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and colored it with Copic Markers.

All of the patterned paper I used on my card is from Thrift Shop by October Afternoon, and I paper pieced the umbrella with the same polka dot pattern.

To be honest, something is bothering me...I think it may be the pattern I used to paper piece with...I may have to re-do this one someday!!

I sewed all of the edges with my sewing machine, and I used not ONE embellishment! I didn't even put a sentiment on...that way I can use this as a get well or a shower card! Bonus!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
