Archi Scraps June challenge

I made my card today for Archi Scraps June challenge
This is the inspiration photo and the criteria is silhouettes.
 This is my card
I took the dome shape and the colours yellow, blue, orange/red and white as my inspiration.
Printed out Whimsy "pretty petals sparkles" from the  MCG Pretty Petals Paper set  
Printed Lacey Sunshine stamp "Emily Rainy Day" by Heather Valentin.  and coloured her with Copics, Distress and Kaszazz markers.  (umbrella is dome shaped)
Printed "Fairy Silhouette" from Create with TLC.  I think she was a free digi stamp back in February.
and sentiment is also from Create with TLC.


  1. Very clever to use the dome shape as an umbrella. Great use of the colours as well. Thanks so much for playing and making a gorgeous card.

  2. Such a lovely card Margaret, I love how you have used the inspiration for your colours 7 added your fairy silhouette, & such a fun sentiment.
