Umbrellas on Sunday Postcard Art

What a cool theme! I immediately thought of "Umbrellas of the Cherbourg", but I didn't go in that direction. Instead, I decided to use a photo of my 6 year old granddaughter, Jessica, taken last year at a street fair. Her dad bought her a paper parasol that she just loved twirling. There were several photos to choose from, so I picked one, created a background, applied some paper posies from K&Co. and there it is. (Sorry some of it is cut off on one side, I didn't want to size it any smaller than it is now, you'd need a magnifying glass). "My Little Love"....most definitely!
