Sorry You're Under the Weather - Color Dare #407

Here is my DT card for Color My Heart Color Dare #407 and partnering with Double Trouble Challenge  #64.  I already knew the stamp set I would use for a Get Well card and felt that the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #381 was perfect.  

Chose colors that were soft and bright (Blossom and Bluebird) using several greys for borders and panels for my focal point. The umbrella was stamped in Heather and then stamped with Bluebird for the umbrella top. Using the light gray the outline of the sections were not very noticeable so I took a black multi-liner pen and drew the lines.  

The center panel was cut with a combination of two stitched scalloped dies (Linen and Heather), and adhered to the soft pink design paper.  The umbrella was fussy-cut (forgetting that I had the thin dies), cut two sizes of clouds (one from the design paper, the other in Heather), and cut a linen banner layered with Heather stamped with a cloud and sentiment... these pieces were all adhered with 3D thin foam tape. Stamped in blue a few raindrops and added liquid glass to them for dimension.  

Note:  This Double Trouble Challenge partnering is changing an earlier start date of Friday, August 14th to meet the same dates as Color Dare, and will be closing earlier on Thursday, August 27th.

What a super get well card. I love that you added a cloud, using the pink patterned paper. Although not a traditional "cloud" pattern, it totally works. Thanks for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
