Friday Throwdown

Good Morning!

Hope you're all having a nice weekend. The weather is beautiful here, warm too. Hoping to get outside this afternoon. But first I have a quick Sunday post.

I had some time to make a card for a couple challenges and wanted to share it with you. I used the sketch from this week's Friday Sketchers Challenge and the color combo from Color Throwdown. The colors this week are Tempting Turquoise, Elegant Eggplant, and a green of your choice. I went with this pretty BasicGrey paper as the starting point for this card.

The image is Whimsy Frog and the papers are BasicGrey Urban Prairie and SU! Turquoise, Eggplant, and Artichoke. I used Copics to color the image. The second layer has been embossed with the CB and bubbles folder. The final touches are flowers, ribbon, buttons, and a charm.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day! See you tomorrow. Happy Stamping!! :)

Edit:
I'm also entering this card into a challenge with a fabulous prize! Crafty Goings On is offering up a set of 72 Copic Ciao markers! How cool it that! For a complete list of details, visit Crafty Goings On! You have until April 10th to enter.
