Umbrella Card

I made this card for my SIL's birthday, and also for the Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week, which was to use an umbrella cut on your card. The umbrella is from Wild Card, the scalloped layer is from Just Because, and the flowers are from Freshly Picked. I cut the flowers out 3 times (they are in a pot) and fit them into the umbrella. In retrospect I should have put the middle flowers in front of the umbrella handle--it looks a bit odd with the flowers behind it. Patterned paper and ribbon is retired SU, sentiment is from SU's Something to Celebrate, and it is stamped on a Nestie double ended tag. CS colors are Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive.
I sponged the edges of the scalloped layer and the flowers and the ribbon tag. Thanks for stopping today!

Very cute! Love the colors you've used and how you have combined the elements. The handle looks fine; I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it....
