Card Recipe:
Image - Hoppy Halloween by Eileen Gutierrez
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - K and Co Spooktacular
Buttons - Dress It Up
Sentiment - Printed in Burton's Nightmare font
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Ribbon - American Crafts
Brad - Spare Parts
Shimmer Spritz - Sparkle by Tsukineko



I think you can see the shimmer that the mist gives the image (hard to capture on a photo). This one is very subtle and I sprayed two coats (letting one dry completely before the second) to give the amount of shimmer I needed. There are many on the market and it's worth getting a few different kinds as they all look different when dry.
I hope you liked this cute this Halloween froggy and be sure to be back tomorrow for a super girly card!
