MPS Challenge

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you all enjoyed the evening and have fully recovered. I spent my afternoon recovering by watching football and making cards.

This card is for Pink Stampers Design Team Challenge. She has two openings on her design team and is inviting anyone interested to participate in a challenge. The challenge is to create a project using her favorite colors: green, pink, brown and a color of your choice.

I created this really cute card using the Create a Critter cartridge. The frog was cut at 4 inches pop-dotted on top of the brown shadow. By taping some red paper to the back of his face I was able to give his smile a "pop" without having red show anywhere else. I placed him on top of a 3 inch lily pad and my color choice of blue!

Up top I cut the dragonfly out at 1 1/2 inches. Again, I pop-dotted it on the brown shadow. The shiny paper really makes the makes it pop. The sentiment was inspired by the announcement banners that planes have behind them. I thought it would be cool to have the dragonfly waving the banner with a stamp from My Pink Stampers Punny-licious stamp set.

The blue, brown and green patterned paper is from Stampin' Up. The rest of it is just scraps that I had. Thanks for checking out my Toad-ally Awesome card.
