Hello Sunshine! So glad you could join me today. I’ve got a super cute and easy fancy fold created with the Under My Umbrella bundle. You can find that set with the coordinating punch on page 42 of the Mini Sping Catalog. I love it when a bundle includes a punch. It makes creating super easy.

WOW, are these colors happy? My husband, a true LSU Fan, only saw the purple and gold and loved it. Hahahahaha!!! Because I used Purple Posy, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron, my color palette is soft and very spring time. This is a perfect card to lift some spirits.

Even more spring time is that fabulous floral design on the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper. One side is “very girlie” while the other showcases some fabulous florals.

Open it up one more time to reveal yet another sentiment. I’ve used so many images from the Under My Umbrella set, I lost count. For that reason, you get a really good feel of all the possibilities with this bundle.
