Hello ... Summer Parasol

Must admit I'm not a fan of this prolonged heatwave we're having would just like it to be a little cooler so I decided to call my umbrella a parasol.  This card combines two challenges, a CAS one with friends/members on the docraft gallery where the brief was one image, ribbon & red and the current sketch from Just Add Ink.

I've tried for the first time to just emboss with a die and I love the result then two sides of the decagon were slit so the ribbon could be passed through behind.  The parasol was created using lots of different dies (stitched circle, scalloped edge, letter 'J' for the handle) from a piece of brusho watercolour paper and decorated with teeny flowers.  Hope everyone is managing to stay cool unless you live on the opposite side of the world where it's winter!

I've used - A6 cream card base tent fold
Various unbranded dies
Brillant Red Brusho
First Edition Modern Alphabet die 'J'
docrafts 'Hello' sentiment stamp from Capsule Collection
Sue Wilson butterfly die
Ribbon from stash
