Rain or Shine...?

I love images with umbrellas so when I spied this D'Arcy's Diaries image I had to grab her and made a card almost straight away. I bought a cute little umbrella die ages ago and have been waiting for the right image in order to use it. I saw a beautiful ticket sentiment on one of Pop's cards last week so popped across to Cuddly Buddly and bought the ticket set, brilliant value for so many sentiments, this one is perfect for this card I think...

I love the image so much I put a mini one on the inside...

Here's a close up of the super cute umbrella die. I've cut it out in kraft cardstock for the base and again in paper to make a patterned shade...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
