Jackson's Digital Expressions CAS Challenge

Hi everyone!  It's time for JDE's weekly challenge but first I'm so excited to share some info!  I've been asked to be the DT Coordinator for JDE!  I can't tell you how flattered I was  :)  I think we have an amazing group of designers and it's been a pleasure working with everyone.  I think Chana and the team have done an incredible job building the blog and challenges over the last 6 months!  I'm looking forward to the next 6 months and our 1 year Blogaversary!

Ok on to this week's CAS (Clean And Simple) challenge which was to use 2 dies in our design.  I have two projects, first is using Robert Jackson's Lil' Mummy.

The dies I used are the Fleur De Lis Square and oval by Spellbinders, the T-shirt is by MFT.  The word art was a freebie from Ginger's House.  Colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.

Next I used this week's sponsor image and sentiment from QKR Stampede.  Now I always struggle with CAS so I have two versions of this card.  Once I took the pic of the 1st one I thought it needed something so the 2nd is, in my opinion, the finished one!  :)   So which one do you prefer?  

This is the cropped version of the scarecrow there is more to the image...but anyone who knows me knows I'm crop happy!  LOL!!  I used the square Spellbinders die then rounded the edges and the half circle scallop is by MFT.  Paper from My Mind's Eye.  Colored with Prisma/Gamsol.
