The Card Concept 8--Umbrella

I'm joining my first Card Concept Challenge because the theme is to use an UMBRELLA.
I just couldn't resist.




The colored umbrellas were die cut from a scrap piece, and I also die cut
three white umbrellas and mounted them randomly to mimic the challenge photo.
The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter.

The white umbrellas were an afterthought. At first I had just the colored ones
and that's when my card was Clean and Simple. Now it's Clean and Layered. I think.
Still lots of white space and layers of umbrellas.

Thanks, always, for stopping by!
