I pulled out some old Stampin' Up papers for this card and paper pieced the umbrella.  Since I haven't managed to sneak in the Award Banner die yet, I added it to the card along with a row of half pearls. Sorry about the bright orange sun (photoshop made it really bright LOL)!  A bit of twine, some bling and this fabulous sentiment finished things off.
