Wishing you 'Brighter Days'

Hello Crafty Ones - so glad you popped in.
This week at Just Us Girls we have a new
Guest Designer - Darnell Knauss - Welcome!
and a new Challenge from our Host the Lovely Lisa

I wasn't sure which way to go with this one -
no weddings or babies on the horizon here so
I found a card I had made at a recent card class
so am cheating here. Thanks to Tania for the inspiration
for the card I am posting here. I have chosen the word Rain
even though there are no raindrops on my card
 - an umbrella instead.
Could I count the sequins as rain???

Thanks for dropping in.
Be sure to pop over Here and see what our 
August Guest Designer Darnell and the Team
have created for you then link up your card for a chance to be
Chic of the Week and be in the running
 to be our Guest in October.

Sequins could definitely be 'rain', I think it's a great take on the inspiration!

Chris Dring said...

Wow Ina! What a gorgeous card. That background is STUNNING!!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Cool card design and love the colors. Yup! I think the sequins could count.

Kathy Krug said...

Beautiful stormy background. love the little umbrella with the perfect sentiment.

Judy Woodland said...

Beautiful background, as usual, I love the umbrella. It doesn't take away from the background, which is really the focal since the umbrella is just black. And yes, I vote that the sequins could be raindrops. At least in a crafter's world.

Wow - love that background - I think it looks like rain too! This is stunning!

Mac Mable said...

Stunning background and love the mix of the colours x

Vicki Dutcher said...

Very cool background -- does remind me of [very colorful] rain :)

Cheryl Wright said...

I love this card, and see the background as rain!

Darnell said...

I love your background, Ina! Pairing it with the umbrella makes me think someone had just painted a large colorful sign over the window of a storefront and then it started raining and all the colors ran down the window! Fun!! Thank you so much for the welcome! It's a pleasure to follow you and be your GD for August!! Hugs, Darnell

I love that background, Ina, and how you broke it up with the circle frame die. The black umbrella pops off it.

Sue VanDeVusse said...

This is an awesome design with that cool background! Love the little umbrella and sentiment. The sequins are a perfect finishing touch on this.

Lisa Kind said...

This is perfect for the word shower! And I love that background. Can't tell if it's paper or you created it! Either way, it's very cool!

Thanks Ina for crediting me. Glad everyone like my card! Would never have thought to class the sequins as rain...but really works for the theme you entered it in. Have a great day!
