CAS Card with Fussy Cut Umbrella

I won some digis from Bugaboo about a month ago, and the umbrella was one of my choices. This is the first time I use it, and I know I'm going to use it again - it was such a delight to color and I like the feminine look of it. I colored it using Promarkers in different shades of blue and red, and I added liquid pearls to the center of the flowers.
The birthday greeting I cut out from a DP that came with a magazine some year ago.
I fussy cut the image and mounted it and each panel on foam for dimension.
To keep a clean design I only added some light blue pearls for embellishment.

This card is for these challenges:
1) House of Cards - CAS
2) Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
3) Southern Girls - No Spoolin
4) Papertake Weekly - Old (birthday greeting and pearls) New (Image) Borrowed Or Blue (coloring and paper)
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

The image is clever and gorgeous and I love that you have cut round it (I'm rubbish at cutting out). I adore how you have kept the card simple to emphasis the image and colours in the image. Very very clever card.
