Addicted to CAS - Challenge #61




Hi everyone,
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our code word is 'Showers'! Shana will be our Hostess for this challenge, and our sponsor is Lawn Fawn! The prize is one stamp set and one 6x6 paper pad of the winners choice!  Also, we have a very special Guest Designer for April...Pia Larson!

 Here is my card:




For the rain drops, I used white embossing paste tinted with Salty Ocean distress ink, then added shimmer with my WOS Clear Brush. Here is a close-up of all the sparkle on the rain drops:


I used Lawn Fawn stitched clouds and Penelope's Blossoms stamp and die set for the flowers. The embossed sentiment is from Mama Elephant.

My teammates have provided lots of inspiration in the ATCAS Gallery, so I hope you'll take a peek and play along with us! 

Thanks to Loll, I am also entering this card in the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge for the theme 'Stenciling'. 



And, I'm adding this card to this week's SSS Wednesday Challenge ~ April Showers and/or Spring Flowers.

 
Have a fun and crafty weekend...Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is so fun. Love how it is only raining on the garden. Your raindrops are fantastic. We are so desperate for any sort of rain here in California--I wish you could make it rain here.
