This week I used the Fancy Umbrellas - Umbrella 4 image from Bugaboo Stamps. I colored the umbrella in PSE. I added some red gel pen to the ribbon outline, and some Stickles Glitter Glue to the flowers. The black flower is a Prima, and the brad, and corner ticket punch used, is by Stampin' Up. The sentiment is something I typed up and printed in PSE. The card base is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and then I added some silver gel pen to the dots. The striped silver card stock is by DCWV. The ric rac ribbon is out of my stash. I have to tell you.....I am loving my Xyron Sticker Maker for adding adhesive to my ribbons, lately! Awesome little machine! If you don't have one, you should definitely add it to your "wish list"!

One more thing before I go.......make sure to drop by the Bugaboo Catch the Bug Challenge Blog starting December 1.........we are having a 12 Days of Christmas Challenge that you won't want to miss! Tons of fun, and chances for you to win Bugaboo Stamps EVERY DAY! :0)Thanks for stopping by today! 

Happy Crafting!
