ODBDSLC #235 Inspiration Challenge

Good morning!
Today starts a new challenge at ODBD!! The challenge is to make your card with inspiration from the photo below. Please join us!

ODBD stamps used: God Quotes
ODBD dies used: Doily, Umbrella
ODBD paper used: Shabby Rose
I wanted to make my umbrella like the one in this photo, folded up with lots of goodies hanging out so I used a scoring board and made accordion type folds in my umbrella, tied a ribbon around it and added a bit of lace to the top.  I made this card a twisted easel card. I used the doily die to make my card base and front and the inside part of the doily die with the Shabby Rose collection paper for the decoration on the circles.  On the inside, I used a rose as a stop.
I filled the umbrella with pre-made flowers and some branches from a Spellbinder die.  I made the little nest with fiber on a 1/2" glue dot and added turquoise beads as eggs.  My card front has lace around the edges.  I was thinking of using paper lace but the bottom would not have laid down on the card inside when open.

Please visit my design team sisters to see all the samples for this week's challenge.

Song of Solomon 2:12-14
The flowers appear on the earth; the time for singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. 13, The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vine with the tender grapes give a good smell.  Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away! 14, O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
I know that this is suppose to be Solomon's words to his wife but I think God has them in His word as a love song to us. He sees us as the bride of Christ, lovely and fragrant. He sings to us a love song, wooing us to Him.  He loves to hear us sing to Him, talk to Him and He loves for us to seek His face. He is my friend, my deepest love, my savior and my Lord. 
He is creator of all the earth and heavens above and He loves me!
