Let a Smile be Your Umbrella

I had a direct swap request from a postcrosser and I decided to handmade postcards for her since she likes art.  I'm glad she likes the idea too.  Anyways, I used 2 challenges as a direction to make my first card.  Since one of them has the theme of "Umbrella", I decided to try out one of my newly bought second hand stamps with an umbrella.  Looove it!  However, as I was taking the picture in the afternoon with not very good sunlight, the color is a bit off.  Sorry about that.  And so I'm entering this postcard for challenges below:

Card Stock: Popular Card - Grey, Espresso & Ivory
Patterned Paper: Jillibean - Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup
