Peachy Keen Challenge #32

Good morning!  Well, I've had a few days off, and it's been a busy few days, but I'm back in card making mode, and loving it!  Today it's time for another Peachy Keen Challenge, and this one is an inspiration challenge.  Our ever so creative Angelica has challenged us to create a card, layout or project with our favorite vacation destination in mind and use at least one of the three B's, (buttons, brads, or bling).

I explained to my fellow DT members that my inspiration for this card comes from the years we spent camping at the lake with our boys.  Oh, how well I could sleep with the frogs singing at night!!  I used the Happy Lil' Bigger Froggies stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps for this challenge, and the sentiment was computer generated.  I did a little masking with the two froggies in the set in order to make a chorus of 4 froggies.  The designer paper is one of the new collections from Stampin' Up!, and my bling is the book plate with brads.  

I played along with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge for this card, and the image was colored with my Copic markers.  Oh how I LOVE those things!!  I think that about does it for this challenge, but I want to make sure you know that you need to go check out the PKS Challenge Blog for all the wonderful destination inspiration examples that my fellow design team members have created for you.  They are such a wonderful and creative group, and it's always so much fun to see what they've been up to!

I'm so happy you could stop by today.  I hope I have inspired you to play along with the Peachy Keen Challenge, and show us your destination inspiration project.  You could win a fabulous prize just for playing, so put on your creative thinkin' cap, and show us what you've got!  Have a wonderful day and happy stamping!

Love ya,

Anyone would "croak" with "green" envy over this card. I was trying to be funny but now it doesn't sound as funny when I type it!

Really, this is so cute and adorable! Anyone that would get it would just adore it!

Your coloring is BEAUTIFUL as always!
