Your Pad Or Mine?



Time for my first project for Shelly's Images! Whoo Hoo! I am soooooo excited to be part of this talented group of ladies! Thanks so much for having me, ladies!

My card features the awesome image, My Pad, from Shelly's Images. I love this image because of its versatility, and darn it he is just cute! Wouldn't you just love to find him floating in your pond? He is available, right now, and on sale for a limited time, so pop on over and grab him for your very own! you can find him, and lots of other fantastic images at Shelly's Images store. Keep coming back and browsing the store, too, because there are lots more wonderful images being released.

I went with birthday for this card, because my cousin has a special birthday coming up and she absolutely loves frogs! Since its a frog, I went with a mostly monochromatic color theme, with some pink thrown in, and another little splash of colors in the ribbon. The layout is a combination of sketches from Sunda Sketch & Stamp and Sketch #79 from Card Patterns. I got creative with the one from Card Patterns and moved the elements all around to fit on my lattice cut card. For the card base, I used white cardstock with a lattice pattern cut into one side. The patterned paper is from my stash. After adding the paper, I decided to fill in the rest of the white space by sponging it with a green ink pad. (This is a new technique for me.) The image is colored with Promarkers and then cut out and mounted with foam mounting tape, for dimension. The ribbon is from my stash. The sentiment is from Stampin UP and is punched using the oval and scalloped oval punches. Lots of fancy cutting on this card! I added pink flowers for dimension and to give the card that little extra something that it seemed to be missing, without them. I love the look of the scrunched pink flowers.
