Bridal Shower Card

I apologize for not having all the Ins and Outs for this card, but the majority of the supplies came from S A B I S (Snips and Bits I’ve Saved). I need a card for a coworker’s bridal shower this week. I couldn’t think of any applicable stamps and then I found this cutie in my image stash. Thankfully I had 2 images on hand. My Copic ‘blobbed out’ when I was coloring her shirt; a big green splotch bleeding across her sweet face. Ugh. I was so happy I received 2 images in the swap! I added a bit of sparkle with an Olive Spica to the umbrella dots and added ‘bling’ raindrops. I was trying to figure out how to add a scallop for the 365 Cards challenge when I realized the umbrella edge makes an inverted scallop ~ perfect! Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites.
