Rain or Shine for {DD #40}

Hello stampers! This week at Dynamic Duos, it's time for our "Black Tie" challenge. Basic Black and Tempting Turquoise are the colors of the week and we have a "dessert option" to use CLOUDS in the design of your card. You can add this option to your project, or not. It's up to you! 
I created this quick and easy card using the umbrella image from the Rain or Shine Stamp set from the SU Spring catty. The sentiment comes from the Bootiful Occasions stamp set and fit perfectly with the theme of the card. I love the new Cloudy Day Embossing Folder! It's a quick and easy way to add a pop of texture to the background. I finished everything off with some polka dotted ribbon and (of course) some sparkly rhinestones. Easy Peasy!
Please join us this week at Dynamic Duos! The challenge closes on Thursday, February 21st at Noon (PST). The rest of the Design Team has created some fun projects with the colors this week, too. Stop by and say hello: 

Have a HAPPY day today! :)
