There really is only a dash of colour on my card - and you have to look closely!! I knew that I wanted to use the "Keep Calm and Carry On" sentiment so I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and embossed with white powder and then cut it out with a rectangular Spellbinder die. I cut a black mat and white mat - embossing the white with my new linen impression plate. Using the second impression of London Fog, I stamped some raindrops across the top of the panel. I cut out the umbrella shape and stamped the solid black umbrella top in Versafine and embossed with clear powder, then I coloured the stitched line with red and added a couple of red gems.
When it's wet and grey and cold you need to keep calm and carry on, and on the inside of the card I stamped a fun sentiment to go with the umbrella image.
That's all for now - I'll be back tomorrow with my second card for CR84FN69! See you then.
we definately need to do that in Yorkshire - we had our wettest year since records began in 2012 and apparently we're set for a wet winter too :-(
Great card - love the teeny-tiny hint of colour too.
Lovely card Deborah and perfect for the challenge...great sentiment

Fabulous card, Deborah. Saw it on LIM and had to leave you a comment,that brolly is perfect with the tiny touches of red. I have this sentiment stamp but haven't inked it up yet, may be now I will!
Great CAS card & I love the splash of red (pardon the pun).
The umbrella is just gorgeous Deborah and I love the tiny zing of red. I'm pretty good at carrying on but it's the keeping calm that's the real trick! Vicky x
