Polka Dot Umbrella

A very quick post for this easter sunday!

This card was made for the Less is More challenge #269: Polka Dots and CASology #190: Weather.
I thought a polka dot patterned umbrella should fit into both challenges.

I found this wise quote on the internet and printed it on a white CS. I used Bernardo Moda Bold for "a Mind is like an Umbrella" and  LaurenScript for "only useful when open". The umbrella is from Penny Black. I paper pieced a rainbow polka dot patterned paper on the umbrella and coated it with Shimmer Pico Embellisher. 

Hope you are having a happy easter sunday! 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
