Make It Monday #6: Impression Plate Tricks #1

I got up this morning and sat down to the computer and the first thing I came upon was the MIM video over at Nichole's blog!  The technique this week is to use an IP on only part of your cardstock!  This is something that I have done quite often with IP's and EF's!  I love the finished look of this! 

So here is my card for this week's challenge...

Yes!  That is orange I used!  I know some of you are falling over right now!  I wanted the card to look more like sunshine than the rain that the umbrella usually signifies!
