When It Rains...

It's been well over a week since I posted to TSB, and I have to admit that I have used the time to recover from Gallery Idol. So, I'm doing a little bit of cheating today by posting a card that I made a couple of weeks ago. This card was one of two that I submitted to Paper Crafts magazine for publication -- this one was the reject, so I get to share it with you! I'm delighted to say that my other card was accepted, and it will be my first time in print come November.
To make the umbrella, I used an oval punch and a circle punch and created the shape out of some pink card stock that I had already embossed. I spent a while punching out little hearts in different shades and sprinkled these on the card. A few little pearls and a printed sentiment later, I was all done spreading a little love...

What a clever use of the wide oval punch and circle punch. How did you make the handle? If this was the "reject," I can't even imagine how fabulous the winner was. Congrats on getting published. Hugs, M
