CAS card for Brian and a Hoppy Frog for Rachel

Guylou's Inimitability Color Challenge



 My 4 yr old nephew Brian was recently diagnosed with Wilm's tumor of the kidney. He had his kidney removed, had a round of radiation and is now on weekly Chemo. I received this image from Guylou's Inimitability for the Spot and Dots challenge and it is perfect for a card for a little guy.....Brian is doing OK with the Chemo- he only likes nurses in Pink shirts though.......I hope he likes this doctor with the Teddy Bear!  The image was colored with Copic markers and I used a Technique Junkies tutorial called Copic Texturizing on the bear. 
  I made a second card to donate to a Chemo center- for patients to use for Project Give Thanks. (Michelle Zindorf's sister has info on her blog HERE).
 Two CAS cards for me- WOW!

Challenges:
Claudia and Company- CAS cards
Bunny Zoe's Crafts- One for the Boys
Incy Wincy-Buttons and Bows
Stamp-N-Doodle-Masculine
Aly's Sunday Challenge-Baker's Twine
Cheerful Stamp Pad-There is a Man in my Life

Well, I decided I could not send a card to Brian and not send one to his sister Rachel- so I used the progressive freebie from Designed2Delight.

I tried the Copic Texturizing again and ended up coming up with the pop up Frog due to a little mishap.....
 And, of course, I had spent all of this time coloring, cutting and layering....so decided I was not going to throw this card away.........so, I cut a little piece of cardstock and fan folded it and attached it to the back of another colored frog......
Sorry that turned out a touch blurry- but you can see what I mean......
  I think I can live with it and Rachel will be delighted!  The card was colored with Copics and the Sky was sponged with Blue Bliss and a template using the scallop oval punch from SU. I added Starburst Jelly Pen to add glitz on the butterflies and the centers of the flowers.

Challenges:
Party Time Tuesday-Anything Goes
Stamping Boutique-winged things- butterflies
Make it Monday-Anything goes
NettieG's Digital Gems-Bugs and Plants
Stamps R Us-Bugs and embossing

Thanks for stopping by! Shelly

These are very cute cards! Somehow, your idea of clean and simple is my idea of heavily layered, but I might be too simple for most people.

The popped pieces on Rachel's card are wonderful - I think she is getting the better of the deal!
