Under the Umbrella card

I won a set of Paper Smooches stamps a few months ago but hadn't gotten to using them until tonight.  I was actually going to play some with some of my new Unity/ippity stamps but decided to try out some other stamps that have been languishing a bit longer.  
The clouds are fussy cut, the umbrella pieced.  I used the colors from the Paper Smooches inspiration picture and for some reason, I keep thinking rain when I see that picture.  I don't know if it's a combination of anchor, vertical strips of blues, worn background etc. or what but I keep thinking rain.

Ingredients: Stamps: (Sunny Side Up): Paper Smooches
Ink: (Basic Black): Stampin' Up
Paper: (Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Ballet Blue): Stampin' Up
