Spring Showers

I made this card today to send to my Dad, we have been talking almost every day on the phone about how it seems winter is never going to stop.   It seems like all of March was rain and grey skies.
Then on Easter Sunday he got snow and 1 1/2 south of him where we are we got sleet.  Since then we are back to grey skies.    We are both ready for the flowers and Summer.   And oh yeah, we don't live up north on East Coast which has had so much snow, but right here in central Missouri.

So when I saw the challenge at   "BITTEN BY THE BUG 2"  I knew I would make a card to send to Dad.   I cut the umbrella on my cricut from the Celebrate With a Flourish cartridge.   I can't tell you how many times I've used this cartridge.   I don't think there is a single image I haven't cut and used.
Then I found this perfect Project Life card in my stash and combined them for this card to mail to Dad.  
Here are the details of the challenge.
