The rain will stop - and we have a WINNER!!!

Good morning! Yesterday was one of those days that it just poured down rain! I won't complain, because I think I might like it a little better than the snow that has been trying to stick around when it should be spring! At least rain feels more "spring-like" I guess! Anyway - this seemed like an appropriate card to share:
It is another card I made using a piece of 6x6 pattern paper folded in half for a card base. Makes the card 3x6 - which is such a fun size I think! All the papers are My Minds Eye.  
The stamps are all from the Unity February KOTM. I stamped the raindrop background and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The umbrella I stamped, cut out, tied a twine bow on, then pop-dotted it from the raindrop background. I stamped the sentiment on a hand trimmed banner, then attached it over the umbrella, curving it in the center and outer edges, and attaching it with pop-dots on either side of the umbrella. 
The lace edge is a border punch by Martha Stewart. 
And now - I almost forgot to draw a winner from my giveaway last Friday! So thanks to - here is the winning number:

Which means the winner is:
