Truly Scrumptious Challenge 13

Hi everyone, and Happy Wednesday.
I'm finally getting back into crafting, after the rather unsettling time I've had lately. I'm off to Capture The Magic too today, so I'm sure to have a great time.

The challenge from Truly Scrumptious this time, is to use this sketch by our very own talented Mina and combine it with 'A bit Of Bling'

I used this Magnolia image from the Butterfly Collection. It's quite appropriate for us here in the UK at the moment, as we're having quite a bit of rain. Typical British 'summer' weather. Still it's what makes out 'green and pleasant land' so special so I don't mind too much.
I used a combination of peach and turquoise tones, with papers from My Minds Eye. This paper is infused with glitter, so is quite 'blingy' itself.

However I also added glitter on the raindrops and on the frill of the umbrella, and for added bling, some gemstones on the Prima blossom which I sprayed with Glimmer Mists beforehand.

Why not pop along to see what the rest of the design team have done, and play along for your chance to win a fabulous prize.

Take care, and happy crafting.
