A tough challenge...

My friend Janet at Corrosive Creations started a challenge blog (the corrosive challenge blog) and I like to play along but this weeks challenge of "under the sea" was really hard because I don't have any stamps of things "under" the sea SO I made my card about a pond or lagoon close to the sea :)
For my card I used the new Froggy Ketto from Stamping Bella. This stamp comes with both sizes so I decided to have to friends sitting on a lily pad enjoying the day. For the lily pad I used Stamping Bella's new grounder oval shadow stamp with Versamark dazzle ink and cut the image out.

The froggys are coloured with lyras & mineral spirits and then I added some crystal effects for their eyes. On the crown and edges of the points I added some stickles. The sentiment is also from Stamping bella and I added bella crystal light baubles.

Thanks for another great challenge Janet; you must be super excited about your trip to Boston tomorrow to see Karen!


Hope you all have a great Sunday - here in Calgary on this 3rd day of spring we have received at least 6" of snow and it's still coming down! Hubby is suppose to fly out later today; glad it's him & not me because everything will be way behind schedule - I will be staying in my house until I have do the the 2nd round of shovelling when it finally stops snowing & blowing. Yep I am really missing the east today especially since my head told me the storm was arriving before it did!

How clever are you?! I'd have never thought to put the little matching one on the lily pad. Great card. Sorry about your snowfall :(

Well I think you rocked the challenge, this is adorable! That frog rocks! Do you get the 'weather change headaches'! I am so lucky, not me! But once in a blue moon, when the chinooks role in, I need two glasses of wine instead of one! LOL
