A Time to Share - All Dressed Up

Today's inpsiration card features one of the new releases at All Dressed Up Etsy store and this one is called A Time to Share, which seems to me, is just perfect for best friends.
The current challenge at All Dressed Up has a theme of using a button so make sure you stop by to see what the team created and enter into the challenge for a chance of winning 3 ADU images of your choice !
Also don't forget to stop by and check out our Facebook Group and Pinterest brag board.
This is my first venture into the world of paper piecing which I did for the umbrella and I like it!  I need more practice but I do like the patterned paper effect on the image.  I removed the sentiment on the image with Paint.net and after it was coloured, I sprinkled some Shabby Pink Frantage (have I mentioned how much I love Frantage?) around it and then coated some little flower brads into my Versamark pad, dunked them into the jar of Frantage and heat embossed them.  If you do this, make sure you use a tweezer to hold the brad... metal heats up - learned that the hard way!
Supplies:
Stamp:  All Dressed Up A Time to Share digi; Sentiment - Papertrey Ink Faux Ribbon
Paper:  My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Madison Avenue
