Bullfrogs & Butterflies by Designed 2 Delight


I've come across the Delightful Inspiration blog several times now and really enjoy looking at the eye candy and love the images that they're using.  The challenge is different than I've ever participated in too.  My understanding is you buy the first challenge image and participate to get the next weeks challenge image e mailed to you free.  If you keep up and play every week you have a new image to work with every week.  Sounds like fun to me, I hope I can keep up!

For my card today I used the Designed 2 Delight Bullfrogs & Butterflies set, the cute image is colored with Copic markers BV17, BV15, BV11, E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, V0000, V12, B12, BG11, BG10, R24, R22, R21, R20, YG17, YG13, YG11, YG05, YG03, YG01, YG0000, G99.  

My layout is this weeks Operation Write Home Stars & Stripes sketch #66.  Cardstock colors are Neenah Solar White & Red Linen, Via Violet Linen & Bazzill ??? tan.  I also used a Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval for the sentiment that comes in the set, added a white organdy ribbon bow to bring some more balance to my card.  The embossing folder I used on the red strip is made by Sizzix but I'm not sure what it's called.

Fabulous card Jan! I love that you used the nice big image the way you did. It really makes the sketch look totally different than just using a patterned/solid paper.
