I wanna be like you-oo-oo

So it has been a while since I got to play with my Anya's =( so sad!
And I bought the new Rain Snow and Shine set the morning it came out at like 4am pacific time and yes I live in pacific time lol. And the ppor dears have been sitting on myshelf unused yet sooooo sad =(
So I thought I have to use them!!!! So Club Anya is having a Casing Challenge "I wanna Be like you" And the card by Caz is beautiful!!! And The greeting farm is having their summer gardner DT call out and I sooo wanted to do that too and well there just doesnt seem to be enough hours in a day these days so I combined them into 1 yay!!!! so i did the casing with the basic layout and feel of the card but the DT call out requirements was use yellow or orange or both and what is crazy is that those are my least 2 favorite colors in teh world he hee hee, but no biggy, yellow looks great with line and hot pink, two of my all time fav summer colors! sooooo mix it all up and here we go! And I know summer you don;t think rain, but here's the deal.... I live in sunny southern California in the high desert it is always very very dry and very very hot, and it's great! but maybe close to 2 weeks ago out of the blue on one of teh hotest days so far it sprinkled rain...go figure lol so it was a clear cooling rain on a hot sunny day lol



So about my card, I did a Shaker box-esque kind of card. I have teh wondow and it is raised with pop dots (but unlike a shaker card I don't have to waste a whole sheet, just enough to hold it up!)
I used my clear accents to make raindrops on teh clear window, as well and around her on teh background paper (those are hard to see in the pic) loaded up with flowers and bling and Ta-Da! I have some stamped flourishes on the background (I completely forgot I had these when I made my ever after card yesterday ) I created some of my own blingy flourishes, and some ribbon. I am very happy with how this card turned out! I hope you enjoy it as much
