HMFMC Mid Week Reminder

Challenge #168 Over at House Mouse & Friends is to Pop It Up  (at least one item on your card has to be popped up).  Fun and Easy.  I decided it was time for some warm weather images to be inked up and colored, so here is my card for this week.
It is very hard to see, but the image panel is popped up and the umbrella was stamped twice, colored twice, fussy cut and popped up as well.  The image and sentiment are both from the Summer Drinks pack and it was colored with Copics.  I used a Scalloped Die by X-Cut to cut the image out.    My black mats and green panel are all card stock from SU! and the paper is from my stash.  The green panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug bubble folder.  I make a bow out of some twine and added a silver candy dot by Jolie to finish it off.  I am hoping to be able to sit out on a beach and enjoy a nice relaxing afternoon with a drink someday very soon.  We'd love to see what you can think of to Pop Up on your cards this week.  We have some great prizes to offer so please play along and join in on the fun.

  17. Everything about this is so wonderful, Donna! The umbrella was the perfect thing to pop up, it just adds so much to an already beautiful card. House Mouse were my first stamps, and I still have quite a few tucked away somewhere -- need to dig them out and play!

  19. I just knew those little drink umbrellas were good for something, Donna! Wonderful stripes and embossing. I think our day is going to feel like this as it creeps into the mid- to high 90s today. Yuck, I so don't like hot weather. :(
