Umbrella Ants


Hi everyone. It's a beautiful sunny day here in Maryland... Although, we really do need some rain to lower the pollen count.  With that in mind, I have a fun card to share using the new Doodle Pantry set called Umbrella Ants.  This set is free with purchase for a Limited Time; plus the NO FOOLIN! Special -- 25% off cart total -- has been extended through April 24!  To see these offers and another fun new set that is being offered free with purchase.  Click here!

For my card above, I used the outline image, a sentiment and one of the sheets of digi paper included in the Umbrella Ants set.  I did some digital paper piecing on the raindrops and umbrella; and colored the image with Copics.  I also added some glossy accents.  The fun dotted papers are from another DP set -- Balloon Ants COLOR plus.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Party Time Tuesday's Challenge #63 (PTT#63) -- Water
Crafting For All Seasons CH#24 -- April Showers
Just Keep On Crafting Challenge #1 -- Anything Goes
The Pixie Cottage Challenge #16 -- Paper Piecing
Scrapalicious USA -- April Showers

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
