Addicted to CAS Challenge #86


Hi there, blog friends ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Code Word is 'Rain'! Here are the details:
- Our hostess is the super talented Ceal
- Our generous sponsor is Stamplorations, and they are offering a $10.00 gift card to the winner
- Our guest designer is the incredibly sweet and talented Caroline Paton 

Here is my first card (sentiment was stamped on the inside):



The raindrops on this card were created with a stencil and embossing paste, and a touch of Wink of Stella for some sparkle. The flowers were stamped, die cut, and popped up for dimension.


I would also like to enter this card into the April CAS Mix Up Challenge...for 'my choice' I die cut the flowers and clouds.




I just received a few new goodies from Pretty Pink Posh, and couldn't wait to have a play...here is my 2nd card:



Couldn't resist that sweet birdie and all the fun umbrellas in this set...so, I masked and inked the background, and colored the bird with Copic markers. The raindrops were die cut with glitter paper using dies from Lawn Fawn 'Spring Showers'.

We would love to have you join us for this week's challenge at Addicted to CAS

Thanks for stopping by,
