Wild Card Cartridge

Who knew that Wild Card even had an umbrella on it?   I based this card on one I saw in the November issue of Cards Magazine.

Selecting colors is a terrible chore for me!  If I didn't have a SU color wheel I would never have considered putting Pixie Pink onto this shade of blue background paper. This one surprised me.  As I was assembling it I thought it should go into my "iffy" box.  But I set it aside, and when I glanced back at it I realized it looked pretty good after all!

The umbrella was cut at 3inches, real size.  I just colored the handle with a marker and stuck on a tiny bow.

I computer printed the sentiment and punched it with a set of nesting ovals that I bought at the stamp club's garage sale. There's a little inking on the edges too.

Very pretty! I had no idea there was an umbrella on WC. I really need to check out my carts more thoroughly! (Or wait on all you creative people to point everything out to me.) TFS!
