I guess all I needed was a little time to meditate on the card during my 50 mile drive to work. As I was driving it suddenly came to me! It needed Baker's Twine and something round..... hmmm..... an Irresistible Chipboard Shape! I couldn't wait to get back home and make those little adjustments to my card. I'll share both and see what you think.
Now I feel like it's complete! The paper is the new Surf's Up (X7168B) paper that will be available February 1. I also included TWO other new products on this card - the pinwheel is one of 2 pinwheels included in the Surf's Up Assortment (Z1841). The assortment also includes 2 yo-yos and 4 printed wooden buttons. SO CUTE! The other new product is Irresistibles Framse (Z1843). This chipboard set includes 18 frames in 3 resist patterns: stripe, polka-dot and houndstooth.
The stamp used, Just Chillin' (C1495) is not new to this book but it is new to me! I purchased this set last year and this was the first time I used it! I love the little umbrella! I stamped it in two colors and paper pieced the sections. The Baker's Twine is from the Paradise Assortment (Z1702). I added Clear Sparkles (Z1752) to finish the card.
Here is the sketch I used from Freshly Made Sketches:
