Please share my umbrella

That title takes me back to the 1960's with the song 'Bus stop' by the Hollies - loved it!

This card is for Crafting life's pieces sketch 21:

It uses the colours for ColourQ 20:

I cut the heart shapes on my cricut using Make the cut software. The papers are out of my offcuts box.
