The Card Concept - #32 Coral, Green, and Aqua

There were toads hopping all over my craft table today... why not use a few to join the fun at The Card Concept

Since there isn't a bloom in sight here yet, it only makes sense to me!!


I'm taking a stab at Clean and Graphic here... a simple sentiment created with my new Big, Bold and Extra set from Winnie & Walter, and the proper colored Pond Frogs - turned tree toads - from Poppy Stamps.  The Paper Studio makes the wood-grained embossing folder which I've colored up with SSS Slate ink before running it through my Cuttlebug.

Seems I'm still thinking about the wonderful news of Gillian's little boy - seconds for CASology?  Hmmm... =]

Since everyone else commented on the frogs, I want to comment on the wood. I love it. I know you've done it before in other colors but it's stunning like this.

What a fun take on a baby card that is unusual and in bolder colors - so bright and celebration - like! How cute is that frog?? Glad I popped by for this "hoppy" card!!

So stinking cute! These frogs remind me of those plastic gooey frogs that you throw at the window and they stick!

Michelle said...

They're cute frogs, not toads! Love those frogs. I love that woodgrain background, too! Great card, Michele!

Those little froggies are adorable and love the colours. Reminds me of the tadpoles we had last year and the frogs we had to release. Was so much fun for us all watching them change in the fishtank, nothing like having the kids learning something when its fun at the same time!!
