Copic/ProMarker Challenge at the Outlawz

Hi there!
This week the Friday's Copic/Promarker Design Team at the Outlawz challenges you to create with theme...


and WOW isn't that the truth! I have umbrellas stashed everywhere (-:

went to another image from Phindys Place (sure miss her!) called Spring Shower ...perfect for this theme!

Had fun layering...PLUS ...its helping me whittle down my stash. I am refusing to buy new until I make a serious dent in the old...KWIM!
I know the cardstock is from Stampin Up and pretty sure the designer paper is too.
Sentiment is from the Cottage Stamper (have had it for years)

Copics used: E00,11...RV21, 34...G24...YG63,67...C2
decorative scissors, added Glossy Accents and a little bow

That's it for me - hoping to see you over at the Outlawz
