Anything but a card challenge 7

Good morning!
Today is a new challenge day at Anything But a Card
Where you are challenged to make anything but a card, and this week you can be inspired by this fab picture
At first I was tempted to try to do a painted umbrella,
but alas I live in Arizona, and umbrellas seem to be pretty hard to come by here!
(who knew!)
Sooooo I had this awesome Saturated Canary image and since
my inspiration from the picture was the umbrella, I ran with it!
Yep, I haven't had an altered composition book in a while!
Ok, so here's the back story, when my parents were out 2 weeks ago we decided we were going to do a family weight loss challenge.  So we got a number of family members on board, and we've been doing our best to keep eachother accountable, and as I'm sort of spearheading the operation, I am offering some prizes. 
This is the prize going out to my sister in law in Florida. 
Hopefully she will stay inspired to keep up the good work!
Plus since I seem to always be winning things, and it's so much fun for me to get these fabulous prizes in the mail I thought I should return the favor! 

Here is a close up of the little sentiment on the front cover....
I love this!  I got a pack of clear stamps at Joann's black friday/saturday sale
they are all very inspirational, and I really cannot wait to use some more of them!

Finally, here is a close up of my colored image
yes, I used my copics,
and yes, I was also inspired by some other challenge blogs that I play along with
Please head over to the Anything but a Card blog and join in our biweekly challenge
