CC122 Unfrogettable brights

Hey everyone! Todays color challenge was to to use real red, greeen galore, and tempting turquiose and these colors just screamed unfrogettable to me! This card was completely inspired by a card MaryJo Albright posted on SCS a couple of days ago. She has an awesome gallery and blog check it out at www.mja.wordpress.com
I used Beate weekend sketch challenge for the layout of this card. Such a fun layout! The flower is a quickutz daisy( I think) with a green brad. All images are colored with prisma pencils and blended with gamsol. The grass was made by using the corner punch to make scallops and making cuts but not all the way to the end of the paper. I layered a think strip of green on top of my cuts so they all look even. All the images except for the mushroom behind the frogs leg are up on dimensionals so this will probably be a card I wont mail LOL! I had alot of fun making it though! Hope you enjoy it to!
Well today marks the countdown to school and work 30 days. The kids and I are marking our calendars and couting them down. This is our last summer together before I go back to work and everyone is in school. My youngest starts prek (sniff sniff). So over the next month I probably will not be posting everyday but I still will be posting 3-5 x/wk. If you want to be notified when I do update you can subscribe to my blog and you will get email notices when I've updated. Hope you all have a great day. Happy Stampin!

Don't cry, there's no crying in mommy land!. Wait until your baby is getting their high school diploma to cry. Or when you oldest child is approaching 30 and you realize how old that makes you. (Sniff Sniff).
Beautiful card. Love it.
