You Can Stand Under My Whimsy Umbrella!

Good morning all, 
 Here I am with my DT sample for the 

I have used the image Umbrella- Whimsy 2 from our sponsor 
To make this circle stepper card.
I cased a card made by a blogger friend of mine Ali, a while back!
It took me ages to figure out the measurements & after tearing out my hair,
doing so, I realised I should have looked for a tutorial! Doh!
Anyhoo, the base was made using Dottie Card from Anna Marie Designs
The fabric behind the image & sentiment is recycled from a
gauze dressing which was out of date.
The flourishes are cut using Marianne Design Dies.
The pins are from my stash & the flowers were from a candy I won ages ago!

Here's a closer look at the image!
I coloured it with a mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers,
Then inked all the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink
