We May Not Be Tadpoles Anymore

For Kristina's Color Inspiration #6 challenge, we had to use the following colors:
So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Pumpkin Pie, and Wild Wasabi (she also told us to keep Wild Wasabi to a minimum)


It took me a long time to come up with a design for this challenge. How to use Sahara Sand with these other colors, was the challenge for me. I decided to embrace the color and use it at the focal point of the card.

I love the
layout challenge Taylor gave us last month. I've used it a few times (here and here) and I love it. I decided to use it for Kristina's color challenge.

I also wanted to use some of the blog candy
Theresa gave me on this card. Thanks, Theresa! I used a flower from Flower Fusion for the lily pad and some Wild Wasabi ribbon.

I also did some sewing on the border. My stitch length and tension is not what I wanted, but I didn't have time to fool around with the machine settings.

Cute card Anthonette! The frog stamp set is one of my favorites. I like the 4 square design pattern you used.

Thanks for the great ideas!

Froggies give me the "heebee-jeebees" but you actually made them look cute! I think you did a great job of embracing the sahara sand and pulled it off nicely. I agree with you, the design is wonderful. I see why you keep going back to it. Once again, your attention to detail is amazing. You really do have a steady hand with all that intricate work you do. I don't know how you manage to do all these beautiful cards with such detail while you have a little bundle of energy at your side! Thanks for always being an inspiration... LOL! Mahalo, Jenn
