oh this is too cute. I love the colors that you chose with this little cutie and your design is awesome.

Linda Coughlin, the funkie junkie said...

Your coloring is so spectacular, Lori. Every card you do is absolute perfection with all its wonderful details! I have to know - did you achieve the 3-D effect with the umbrella by just coloring it or is it actually rippled? It's amazing either way!!

So happy I found time to join in the Whimsey release blog hop.

Hugs,
Linda
