Fresh Squeezed Stamps (Spring Cleaning-Day 2)

Weather Through
It's Day 2 Spring Cleaning over Fresh Squeezed Stamps. We DT are sharing some projects that were made with oldies (but goodies) with you.
Here is my take with this fun set called Weather Through.
we'll weather it together-2
 I paper-pieced the umbrella image and stamped the background with raindrops. I added the cloud and faux stitching (with white gel pen) and sequins. I miss doing paper-piecing and this umbrella image was perfect for that. 
Please stop by Fresh Squeezed Stamps and see what my team have in store for you. Don't forget to comment as FSS is having a giveaway, too! Thanks for stopping by!

A fun card, Virginia - I like the scalloped edges of the white panel and the kraft card base is a nice touch. And, of course, the paper piecing is one of my favorite things about this card.

Very cute, Virginia. I love your paper pieced umbrella and the raindrops stamped at an angle, as if it was a very windy day :).

Sweet card Virginia, I especially love the little touch of the interior of the umbrella having a different pattern than the outside. Such a nice touch.
