Rain Man

Hello friends - I am sharing a card that has been inspired by a tag I created for one of my Workshops a few years ago.  I used it as the centre feature for this card.  

I have used the Stampers Anonymous Umbrella Man embossing folder and coloured/sponged it using Imagine Crafts Memento Inks.  The sentiment is from a Close to my Heart set.

The embossing folder is the Spellbinders Picnic by Licensed Designer Tammy Tutterow.  I have sponged it using Memento Ink in Teal Zeal.  The tag has been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Adhesive Runner,  Twine is tied around the card front and a ticket stub popped in, secured with a little glue.

At this point it is a card but I am contemplating taking it further and adding it to a canvas - what do you think?

This card is for the following challenges:
