You can stand under my umbrella...

Når jeg malte paraply motivet på kortet mitt, fikk jeg den 'Umbrella' sangen til Rihanna på hjernen.. Måtte søke den opp på youtube og høre den gjenom for å bli kvitt den! 🎵 hehe ~ her er lenken om du også begynte nynne ...'Now that it's raining more than ever ~ Know that we still have each other ~ You can stand under my umbrella ~ You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, ey, ey, ey...'

Prøvde igjen å lage et såkalt 'clean & simple' kort, noe som er vanskelig for en typisk distress-kortlager som meg, syns det ser nesten uferdig ut! ;) 

DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #163., og paraply digistemplet er fra vår sponsor Milk & Coffee. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ♥ 

Jeg har en blogcandy som du kan være med på trekningen til ~ her ~ om du enda ikke har sett den!

~ Worlds best ♥ friend ~

When I watercolored the umbrella motif on my card I got the 'Umbrella' song from Rihanna popping up in my head. Had to go searching youtube for it to get rid of it, stuck like an earworm ~ You know when you can't remember the lyrics and just go on and on and on and on humming the tune, not able to finish? lol 🎵 ...'Now that it's raining more than ever ~ Know that we still have each other ~ You can stand under my umbrella ~ You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, ey, ey, ey...' Here is the link if u got infected, it is a very catchy song!

I tried once again doing a CAS card, wich does not come very naturally to me, beeing a typical distress-cardmaker.. a card doesn't seem complete without some distressed edges and preferable some bling or other embellishes ;) 

DT card for this fortnights challenge #163. at Creative Fingers with the umbrella motif a freebie that can be found on the blog of our sponsor Milk & Coffee. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations. 

And btw, I have a BlogCandy with some goodies here if you haven't seen it yet ♥

colored Tim Holtz distress markers & Twinkling H2O's.
