Colour challenge @ The Outlaws

Good morning friends,
Before I get carried away, I would like to welcome my new followers. It is so good to have you visiting and hope you will always find some inspiration.

Where is the time going...only 5 more sleeps till we fly out on our holiday. The weather in The Netherlands and other Northern Hemisphere countries does seem to be more springlike now...so that is good news.

This week the colours and twist  at The Outlaws Colour challenge was chosen by Penny  with the twist ..to use patterned paper.

Our sponsor for April is Digi My World, with a $10 gift certificate for the winner

My teamies on the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration, so please come and join in the fun.

I kept my card fairly simple this week

Image is a freebie by Nana Vic from CDAC progressive challenges.This is the first in a series of 4 digis. As you finish a card with the image, you may request the next one. I am lagging behind, but will get my next one now.
 I paper pieced the umbrella with  patterned paper, added some glitter and glossy accents on the handle. Mounted it on a Marianne Deign diecut.
The papers are pieces from my stash.
Sentiment is a Whiff of Joy, stamped on a tag, with brads. Finished off with pearls.

I am going to enter some challenges:

I have just heard the tragic news of the bombing at the Boston Marathon. What a horrible act. My heart goes out to the people of Boston and those that were injured, also the families of those that died. My husband used to run marathons all over and I was always there watching, so feel very much for all those people.

I wish you all a wonderful week, with some crafting time and enjoying the good weather if you are lucky to  have some. See you soon and take care.
Love Ursula

Keeping it simple works so well around that amazing sentiment that you chose to go with the little umbrella digital. Fantastic paper piecing with such pretty paper and the little glitter dots finish it of so nicely.
Thank you Ursula for joining us at CDAC freebie challenge *Hugs*

Hello Ursula,
This card is just LOVELY. I like the soft colours here and the pearls look perfect.
PS: When I turned on the TV this morning, it was sad to hear the news about the Boston Marathon. I feel is sometimes better not to watch the news the first thing in the morning you know.
