This week's Challenge from Beate

It looks like Beate's doing challenges on her blog every week now....I hope I can keep up! Here's what I came up with for this week's challenge, a fairly simple card using the Unfroggetable Stamp Set.

This sketch challenge was for a square card, so I used half a sheet of 12x12 Brocade Blue to make a 6x6 square card. I chose my colors based on some Michaels ribbon that I have with shades of blue, green, and brown. I layered some chocolate chip on the card and then added a strip of the Celery Palette 'o' Prints paper with the dotted flowers. On a piece of white cardstock I stamped the frog and then colored him in with celery and brocade blue ink using my blender pen. I framed him in blue and then added some faux stitching with my paper piercer and white gel pen. I stamped the sentiment on white and then framed it in green, positioning it over the ribbon. For a final embellishment I added a Hodgepodge hardware buckle to the ribbon.

This was a fun, yet simple card that I hope to use for either Father's day or a birthday card for one of the men in my life this summer.
