Hey everyone!  I'm posting a bit late tonight, but better late than never, right?!  This is the card I made for this week's sketch over at the Clean & Simple stamping blog.

I followed the sketch almost exactly, but I decided to use my larger SU square punch (which made the square a little bit smaller than in the sketch).  I thought it would be easier to try and line up the frogs the way I wanted them using my punch.  I also needed to move my sentiment down just a little bit.

My card sort of just fell together today and I had it finished rather quickly.  That's the great thing about sketch challenges, I can just stamp away!

I stamped the frogs and then punched them out.  Next I colored their eyes and mouth using my Close to Cocoa SU marker. 

I then placed the frogs on my brown card stock layer and then I started assembling my card.  At the very last minute I decided to add the fly which I stamped, cut out, and then I added a bit of glitter on the wings.

My ribbon treatment is simply three small ribbon scraps tied onto my main Close to Cocoa ribbon.  This is a great way to use up some of your ribbon scraps.

Have a great rest of the day and tomorrow I'm planning on making a card for this week's CAS-tastic challenge.  Don't forget if you haven't already done so, be sure to leave a comment on my first blog giveaway post for a chance to win the set of cards I made earlier this week.  I'll be drawing a winner on Monday July 19th.
