Dancing in the rain

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Happy Friday all!
Wow, this week flew by fast, don't you think?  It's been SO nice to have sunny skies and temps in the 50's this week! Absolutely lovin' it!

Today I have a fun card to share using an adorable cut file I picked up from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons called  Rainy Day Critters. Oh my gosh, if you haven't checked out Lisa's files, your missing out! She has SO many cute files and  remember she always has a" Freebie Friday" file available for you too!

When creating this card, I also kept in mind some fun challenges to play along in :) I haven't had the chance to play in some of these for a while so I was happy to join in!
Hope you like it :)
The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and base layer 4 x 5 1/4.  The pattern paper for the base layer is from Simple Stories Home Spun collection that I won over at Paper Issues a few weeks back.  I also used Echo Park ~Sweet Girl collection for the darling raincoat, boots and umbrella.

I cut a couple mats from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge at 3 3/4. I embossed one of the layers with the SU chevron folder. The cute frog is part of the Rainy Day Critter file and cut on my cameo. I inked the edges on some of the pieces to add dimension along with glossy accents and Viva Ruby Glitter to the raincoat and boots.
I stamped a darling little face on the umbrella with PK173~Great Vibes Robot stamp set, added rosy cheeks, freckles and glossy accents and then tied a bow on with green apple Divine Twine.
The label was created using My Creative Time's~Curly Label and Stitched Curly Label metal die. The sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's~I'm here for you Rain or Shine stamp set. I finished with 3 Girl JAM daffodil crinkle ribbon for the double bow.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Paper Issues Pocket full of Sunshine (used sunshine in sentiment)
2.) 3 Girl JAM Challenge Anything Spring
3.) Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #92 Flowers OR Buttons & Bows
4.) DL.ART April Linky
5.) Just B Creative Crazy April Linky Party
6.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party~Anything Goes
7.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #44 Anything Goes
