Becky's CAC #5

Hurray! I'm early for Becky's challenge this week.

Here are the requirements and the inspiration picture for the challenge.

When I look at the inspiration picture, I think of an old-fashioned mother. It reminds me of "Mrs. Cunningham" from "Happy Days" or "June Cleaver" from "Leave It To Beaver". It is vintage comfort.

I knew that I wanted to use my Scattered Showers set and addition. So, here's what I made. 
  I used the vintage-looking umbrella. Instead of polka dots, I used the raindrop background from the additions set. I stamped the tag from the additions stamp with Aqua Mist ink and cut it out by hand. 

Here's a close-up of the sentiment. Since the inspiration gave me comfort, I wanted my card to do the same. 

 To finish the inside, I stamped the umbrella image again. 
Thanks for taking a look.
