Jumping for Gold!

Hi all! I'm back again with another card from Theresa's set "Hang in There" I'm really loving this set!! I keep coming up with all these new ideas!! LOL.
The color challenge at SCS today is an Olympic challenge, where you choose your own event based on the colors of the Olympic rings. I did no. 2, two colors and a neutral, plus a dessert metal color such as gold, silver, bronze you get the picture. My colors are green and blue and Ivory. Dessert color Gold.



First I used Ivory from Gina K Designs in 120lb. weight and nestabilities to cut and emboss with labels large rectangle. On a seperate 120 lb card stock I stamped and colored the image using greens and some blue in copic's and then cut out the image and leaving off the tree. I then glued the image (frog) to the edge of the opening along the embossed edge. You can click on the card for a larger image I hope.


The stamps I used are Theresa Momber's stamp set "Hang in There" and Gina's "Inside and Out" both sets are available at Gina K Designs. Card stock is Gina's pure luxury 120 lb in Ivory and her gold. The inks are memento in black and bamboo leaves. Hope you can tell how this card was made I'm not so good at taking photo's inside and out. Anyway the sentiment is stamped on the cut out piece that I embossed. Then matted on gold. I attached it so when the card is closed it fits right in.

I decided to do the frog because I watched the Olympics last night and they were doing the ski jumping, my word they sure do jump a long ways!! Amazing!! I think tonight is the woman's ice skating.

Have a good day! P.S. You know that sun I told you about yesterday? It's gone and now it is snowing!!

Love it! You come up with the neatest ideas! Love how that frog just wants to jump right out of the card! By the way, it snowed all afternoon here in Houston. Wasn't cold enough to stick but if temps fall below freezing tonight it will probably ice over -- not good for people who aren't used to driving in winter weather!!
