Rainbow Umbrella

It is raining heavily outside so I was inspired to create a card with an umbrella on it!

The card is for the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 201
QKR Stampede - April Showers
PINspirational Challenges - Inspiration Photo
Papertake Weekly - BINGO (glitter/free/gems)

The paper for this card is some from my stash.  I have used some textured cardstock from a matstack by DCWV for matting.  The lace is also from my stash and has a bit of a sparkle to it. The ribbon is glitter tape from American Crafts.  I have added some rhinestones for a bit more sparkle.

This is the sketch that the card is based upon:
