Toadily

Today's sketch for Freshly Made Sketch challenges comes from Cindy and can go in so many different directions.




I decided to make a slightly non-traditional Valentine's card for one of my boys.



I used an image from Penny Black's transparent set called Toadily.  I stamped my toad onto Xpress-it cardstock and colored with Copics.  I mounted every layer onto Basic Black to keep to a green color scheme.  The DSP is from Epic Day and the sentiment is from Avery Elle's Oh Happy Day set - love that calligraphy font!


The inside is finished very simply.


Thanks for visiting.  Check out the awesome inspiration from the rest of the design team.

Products used:

Stamps:  Toadily (Penny Black), Oh Happy Day (Avery Elle)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Gumball Green, Basic Black, Xpress-it, Whisper White, Epic Day DSP
Accessories:  Copic markers, sequins

Cheers
Karren
