#16 Art By Mi Ran Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!

Happy Friday to everyone!! I hope your week has been a special one and that you are ready for a GREAT weekend! Fall has reached these mountains for certain...leaves are changing colors and the temps are dropping...brrrrrrrr

Today is #16 Challenge at Art by Mi Ran Challenge where ANYTHING GOES...so please come over and join us!! We would love to see your gorgeous creations!!  My card today is quite unusual for me but was a request of a CAS card...so I can honestly say that this type of card is VERY difficult for me and looks pretty naked to me...hahahaha


I used the darling April's Rain and I think she is just the cutest girlie in her froggy boots and tiny frog on her rain jacket!! She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics and Promarkers. I added Glossy Accents to the raindrops and Clear Wink Of Stella to the leaf and rain boots. The DP is from the Family Ties paper pad. For the horizontal, I merely added dark blue grosgrain ribbon topped with yellow satin and spring green grosgrain. The only other addition is a cute little enamel frog button that I found in my stash--I just love his wiggly eyes!!!!

SWEET STUFF!!!

WOUW it´s just as beautiful as always Jacque, and you did an awesome job on her. I´ve never been good at making CAS cards either, but yours here looks really nice, even I didn´t even think, it was allowed with more layers on a CAS card, but it sure helps a lot in my eyes with just a couple layers like this, as I certainly also always think, it´s really naked and miss quite a bit, when I try and always ends up adding more to like, what I´m doing ha ha ha. I love the colors, you´ve used here.

For you, this really is a CAS card Jaque, but due to your fab coloring, the pretty papers and the beautiful bow it still is a gorgeous card (and I don't miss all common embellis)
