Under My Umbrella - We'll always be friends!

I have had this stamp forever..Just one of the first Girlfriends is my guess! Most of my Ai images are unmounted, but this is a wood mount I bought many years ago...loved them from way back then!

I stamped and colored the Girlfriends in different layers...the two middle girls on the bottom layer, the second layer has the two outside girlfriends and the third layer is the paper pieced umbrella! Looks difficult but actually pretty easy. I mounted all the layers on an embossed card base and tied some twine on the top of the card.

The sentiment panel was cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched die. 

 I actually cut the sentiment stamp apart because I thought I would use is more that way.  

We'll always be friends...(front)

we know way too much about each other    (stamped on the inside)

I am entering this in the following challenges:

I love the girlfriends stamps. I have a few and love it that there are images with 4. I'm one of 4 sisters and have a few that I've used for cards. I especially love to send to my brother, he lived with 4 little sisters. YES he survived. Thanks for joining us at CCCrew Vicki DTmember
