MCT Thrifty Thursday

It's Thrifty Thursday with My Creative Time, and we are trying to use up our scraps!  I'm always happy to do that, since my Sterilite 6-Drawer Craft Cart is completely dedicated to scraps.  I use two of the 12x12 drawers for patterned scraps, one for holiday patterns, one for shades of red, orange, and yellow cardstock, one for shades of green, blue, and purple cardstock, one for neutral cardstock, and the last one for 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" pieces of cardstock that can be used for card bases.

For my card today, I used a sentiment from the new MCT I'm Here for You Rain or Shine stamp set and then set up a scene to match!

For the scene, I pulled out some of the latest My Creative Time dies and ran them through my Vagabond with some scraps that looked good together.  The adorable umbrella was made with the Stitched Umbrella Die, and the flowers were made with the Stitched Daisy Die.  The cute little leaves were made with the Stitched Leaves Dies.  I machine stitched some curvy lines along the bottom of the card to add some interest.

Of course, this card wouldn't be complete without some clouds.  Luckily the dies from Fly Away With Me were the perfect match!
