Hoppy Frog

It's March, Spring will soon be here and hopefully all this cold weather will soon turn into warm sunshine! So what does that mean in the cardmaking world? Lots of green St. Patrick's Day inspired cards and a few Easter ones as well.

This card is a totally monochromatic green and white one for Inkspirational's Challenge #10 to use any shades of green, F4A157 to make a funny man's card (Ok so mine's more punny than funny, but I genuinely don't have any funny stamps!), for Viva La Verve's Sketch #2 for March and for Friday Mashup's Challenge #100 to choose one of their old challenges. I chose #6 to make a monochromatic masculine card, which went perfectly with both of these other challenges and I know I definitely need more masculine cards in my stash!


And here's my card.


Recipe:

Stamps: Boy Basics: Frog Hop, Background Basics: Medallions both from PTI

Papers: Lucky Limeade, Gumball Green, Whisper White, In Colors 2012-14 DSP Stack all from SU

Inks: Lucky Limeade, Gumball Green both from SU

Accessories: Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon, Googlies both from SU, Boy Basics: Frog Hop Die from PTI, Button from stash, Baker's Twine from Martha Stewart

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
