Under my Umbrella

Hello to you all on this dark, miserable and wet afternoon.  Autumn has really arrived here in the UK and it is freezing.  It's 5pm and getting dark.  You can feel winter in the air.  
Enough moaning from me.  I have finished the local weather forecast.

My card is really suitable for a day like today, she may be a bit cold without her coat.

List of Materials used to make this card:

Wonderful image Under my Umbrella from D'arcy's Diary.  She is so cute and I have made her umbrella and dress using the Paper Piecing Technique.  The image is also coloured using Promarker Pens and Polychrome Pencils which I love and cut using a Spellbinder Die.
Card base is 7" x 7" Centura Pearl and mats have been cut out using a Martha Stewart Round the edge punch technique and I am seeing this everywhere at the moment.
The designer paper is from my stash and is I think from Kaisercraft.
I have used lots of crystal bling, flowers, feather, ribbon which is vintage seam binding.  and a lovely little crown charm from my stash reading 'Princess' and I think she is or perhaps Diva might be appropriate.

A closer view of this so sweet image.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - Inspired by a Song - The Umbrella Song - BINGO - Ribbon, Digi, Die Cut - Inspired by a Song - The Umbrella Song - Use more than one Die Cut or Punch

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.  Your time and comments are much appreciated.

Sending Hugs to all.

Please keep dry and warm.
