A little break from the scrappy cards for a bridal shower card.  This one’s pretty colourful so you might want to whip out the sunglasses before looking at the full reveal!

I used my Thrift Shop paper and some cheerful SU cardstock (I was going to say raspberry something but I think it’s Melon Mambo – I can never get the In Colour names straight!)  The pp is matted on a scrap of Cool Caribbean that was sitting on my desk and I zig zag stitched between patterns and straight stitched around the edges of the whole mat (for me that is a LOT of sewing.)

The image is coloured with markers and paper pieced.  I admit that it was a little tricky to paper piece the right hand side of the raincoat but I got ‘er done.

I didn’t think the image needed to be matted as the pp is so strong.  The only thing left to do was add a few more touches of melon mambo which I did with the sentiment (computer generated) and a little ribbellishment using a button from my stash.

Got those sunglasses on?…

IRL, the ribbon matches the cardstock exactly.  Not sure why it’s coming out a different shade in the picture.

Before I jet, just want to wish my DH a happy birthday!!!
