Less is More....week 61 Lucky Dip



Chrissie and Mandi over at Less is More have come up with yet another great challenge for us and this week it is Lucky Dip and we have been given a lovely picture for inspiration. 
For my card I have used the Memory Box umbrella die and the centre umbrella I've turned upside down and filled with flowers using various small flower punches.
Backing paper is from Papermania Blueberry Hill, corners dies are from Whimsey Stamps.
Sentiment is from Personal Impressions.
