Kid with Umbrella is another cutie pie and versatile too.  I've made my card into an inspirational one for a friend who has been feeling down lately.  I hope she likes it.  

Everyone who has played along in last month's challenge received this image for free.  If you decide to hop on and play along in the Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge, then you can purchase this digital by clicking HERE (or on the watermark above to head to its location in the store).  This way you'll receive next month's digital stamp for free. 

Here are my card and details... 

General Information:
  • This card was put together digitally and then printed out, so that I could colour the image by hand and then assemble it. 
  • There is a bit more spacing at the top than is necessary because when I first came up with my idea for this particular layout, I was going to add some gemstones to the top and then have the ribbon at the bottom like I do.  However, when I was doing the finishing touches I decided that some teardrop stones might look like really big raindrops so I changed the concept and was left with a bit of extra space at the top.  It isn't too much off balance so hopefully it looks okay.

FRONT
Digital Image Details:
