Gorgeous Umbrella

Here is a traditional clean and simple card in the classic black and white with a POP of purple. The umbrella was colored using markers. I like the sentiment for anyone who has been going through a difficult time, or who has been ill or just needs to be uplifted. We should all strive to be optimistic.

Stamps: Beautiful You
Paper: Basic Black A-2, Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4 (2)
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Markers: Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape
Technique: CAS
Accessories: Adhesive

It is so easy to want to embellish this card more. You can add sequins, ribbon, more color, even rhinestones or pearls, but I think it would distract rather than enhance the card. What do you think?

All supplies can be purchased through my online store. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

I thank you for your time and appreciate your feedback. 



  1. Sally, this is so pretty - I'm glad you used one of my favorite SU stamp sets and made such a pretty card for me to admire.

  2. I just love this clean and simple card, Sally. I never got this set, but love it.

  3. I love your classic elegant card, Sally - and the purple really makes your umbrella girl POP! Love it!
