Toadally Awesome

 Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Today is Wednesday and the start of a new Color Throwdown Challenge. We have the colors aqua, green and white to create with this week.
 For my card, I used the adorable new Lawn Fawn stamp set Toadally Awesome along with the Toadally Awesome dies to create a Father’s Day card for my husband. I started out by stamping all of my images and coloring them with Copic markers and then die cutting them out. Next I used the distress ink colors tumbled glass, twisted citron, peacock feathers and blended them onto a piece of white cardstock for my background. I then took a paintbrush and added some water droplets to my blended panel and soaked them up with paper towel. After that, I used the Grassy Hillside Border dies and die cut two from new leaf cardstock and then blended some new leaf ink along the edges on both pieces. Next I die cut the pond from the Bayou Backdrop die and blended on some tumbled glass distress ink along the edges. Before I adhered anything down, I lined up my sentiment and using my Misti tool, I stamped it in black ink. Then came the fun part, putting my scene together. I added the lily pad in the pond and popped up the “Dad” frog with one little frog on top using foam tape, added some cattails, a dragonfly and the two other small frogs (we have three children) sitting on the log which I popped out with foam tape as well. To finish it off, I added a white stitched frame which is actually the Bayou Backdrop with the leaves cut off.
