Playing with Frogs

The Way's to Use it Challenge at Splitcoast this past week was to create a card about playing - sports, games, puzzles. I took the opportunity to use my "games" DP again and used the sketch challenge from Our Creative Corner.
I scrounged through my little boxes of extra letters and was able to find a variety of black letters to spell out the greeting. Then - I was bad - and stole a poker chip from my son's stash.....which he hasn't used in way over a year - so I figured it was free game (ha ha).

The Splitcoast Colour Challenge this week was Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Basic Gray. Honestly, when I gathered my scraps, just to see what they looked like , I began longing for brighter colours. However, I really like how this card turned out. The image is from Penny Black - one of the frogs is playing a guitar so I had to buy the set.
I've used the sketch from over at "Lord Have Mercy" from
last Tuesday.

Well.....I hope you're day is going well. Thanks for dropping by!
