Clean and Modern Card

One of my resolutions was to enter some challenges where I can use my Stampin' Up supplies.  Here's a card I made in keeping with my latest theme, April Showers Bring May Flowers.  My last card was funky vintage.  This one is clean and modern.

You can see that I stamped the umbrella again in teal and used a foam dimensional to pop it up.  

For texture, I used the narrow heart embossing folder several times.  As you know, when you run the folder through another time, it flattens what you did the first time.  But I liked the overall interesting textured effect.

I like the dimension on the umbrella.
A really fresh card.

Well good grief, lynne and I are thinking alike today--the second I saw the card, "fresh" popped into my mind.

The good kind of fresh, not the sassy mouth kind!
