Challenge Crazy

I'm playing in a lot of challenges with this one card! (and it's sad how long it took me to create- ok recreate, since the original version didnotwork.)
 PTI aqua mist base, polka dot basics, scattered showers & die, vintage lace die. Yummy May Arts satin ribbon, and the new bakers twine tying that button on .
 I stamped the sentiment in pink and cream for a bit of a shadow effect.
 The technique on the umbrella is from this week's MIM.
I think I've covered the elements of CAS-ual Fridays challenge: one pattern, one image, one sentiment.
 And the colors and dry embossed element are inspired by The Shabby Tea Room.
 And Jay Gee's Nook.
WHEW! I believe that is a record for me- and it will make my friend, Erin, grin. Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think!
