MCT ~ Designer Challenge

Good morning! I hope you all are having a FABULOUS week! I know I am, with tons happening in our household with school activities, baseball and just enjoying life.
Today Emma and the My Creative Time designers have a new Designers Challenge for you! It is a color, sketch and photo inspiration one this time around!
I have to say, I loved the colors and the picture. I took a very different approach for my project this time around. I wanted to incorporate all the colors but bring some of the elements from the photo. With that said, I had to pull out the Stitched Umbrella Die and added a linen look to it by using a stamp from the Build a Banner Kit. I figured the umbrella in the picture was linen. Then I decided to use the Grainy Wood Background because the furniture looks like it could be teak wood??? The lush green shrubs stood out to me too and used the stems from the die set, Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies to fill my umbrella in. My flowers are  from the Seasonal Greetings set and my sentiment is from Thanks For the Lift set. Super simple and easy to create!
