Ah Spring!

Good morning! This week at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings we have a week long Peachy Keen Stamps showcase. It is my turn to share some fun Peachy Keen images paired with some cute trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon~! 

RRR is offering a $25 Really Reasonable Ribbon Gift Certificate to one random commenter from one of the posts on the RRR Blog this week, 
so be sure to comment on each one between now and 3/23.  
RRR will be announcing the winner on Monday, 3/25.  
Peachy Keen Stamps will also be offering a $25 Gift Certificate 
to their website which will be awarded to a random commenter 
on their blog posts, so you have 2 chances to win!!

Since it's supposed to be Spring (27 degrees and snow on the way to my house today....), I wanted to make a fun spring card using the cute Peachy Keen Shower Peepers stamp set. Along with some adorable chicks, this set has a super cute umbrella too!
I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch 94 for my layout:
I love this layout with the little banners. 
The umbrella is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in with Copic markers. I added some sparkle along the bottom edge of the umbrella with Crystal Stickles. I used my favorite Apple Green Mini Ric Rac and Green Apple Baker's Twine, along with some pretty Kaiser pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbon for my embellishments. 

The Deconstructed Sketch girls have some terrific samples to show, so be sure to have a visit at their blogs too!
