Wishing you shower of blessings

Well I am excited to share my last Papertrey Ink WCMD challenge. The last country was Aurtrailia and the challenge can be found here. I also used this fun color combo from SPWCMD combo #5.
Here is Nichole's fabulous graphic for her challenge
Here is my card
Now Nichole challenged us to use your gel pen and dot it up. Now for some reason I did dashes, but I did like the end product. The dots are from Polka Dot Basics 2. I needed a guy birthday card, so this really worked well for me. Yet another reason why I adore papertrey ink, it is so easy to break down the sentiement so it fits the space you need.
I heat embossed all of the umbrellas. Did you notice the background in the top note die, well that is actually a page of my phone book LOL! Okay I found another fun challenge called Everything but the Kitchen sink. Here are the details about their new challenge.
The challenge will always be to use a specific item from around your house! There
are tons of things we can use around our houses, but I think many times we forget
to look!
So without further ado, here's this months challenge:
Use something from the mail as part of your card or scrapbook page!
Isn't that interesting? I wasn't sure what I would do until today. The new phone book came in the mail. Now I looked and looked for our old one, but it was not found. I origionally thought all of the numbers would be super fun, but I can't take out this years numbers. When I was flipping through, I saw some rules for our city. Well I am not in the city limits so Jackpot!!!!
It's a good life!
