I made this card last night for a teacher I subbed for last week. She had frogs all over her classroom so I thought she would enjoy this frolicking frog image. I got lucky when I looked at the challenge this morning and my card fit for the challenge! YAAYYYY!
The challenge today was to mix patterns like dots and stripes. Use 2 or more different patterns of dp or backgrounds.
My card base is 5 1/4" sq. The dp I used was east coast prep. I colored my image with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. The ribbon is the double stitched wild wasabi I love this ribbon. It comes in all the In colors. The frog is popped up on dimensionals and I added stickles to the dragonfly. Okay now on to the goody of the card. I bought some MM brads probably a year ago. I pulled them out last night b/c I needed a mustard brad and couldnt find one so I went through my eyelets and found this pack of eyelets that has matches for blue bayou, pomegrante, mustard and eggplant.! Why have I been hoarding these I dont know but I promise you will see them more in the next few days. Have a great day!

You have too much hoppin' fun with this set and I am glad you have used it again. I love it when I create something and before I load it a new challenge fits what I made. Great card and I am sure the teacher will just love it too.
