Fushion Card Challenge - Laugh Decor

 Hello & Welcome.  Before I get started on today's post I'd like to say how excited I was this week to have 2 of my cards chosen as honorable mention cards for the challenges.  

I made the Paper Players #542 - Cut Above for my Flamingo card & 
Freshly Made Sketches #487for my floral trio card.  

Now on to today's card.

I'm joining the Fusion Card Challenge - Laugh Decor

This week I went more towards the inspiration photo and the laughter theme.  

Here is what I created:

For this card I dug out one of my mom's stamps to use as my focal image.  She loved "cute" things and thought these frogs were adorable (so do I).  I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with colored pencils (Prisma) and blended with Gamsol.
The sentiment is one from Hero Arts - Anytime messages.
Card Stock: Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White and a retired SU color of blue.   The designer paper is a scrap that I had.
I used Nestabilitie Dies and a Fishtail Die (MFT) and some sequins to finish off the card.

Inside I stamped one of my favorite "saying" stamps: Hero Arts (Celebrate just living).

That's it for today. - Have a great day & thanks for stopping by.


  1. they both are perfect for spreading joy

  2. Oh! If I had this stamp it would be one of my favorites! The sentiment on the front is very appropriate, and I love the inside, as well. Super cute card, Ida!

  3. congratulations on having your cards chosen for honorable mention. It doesn't surprise me though since all of your cards are wonderful.
    This one is no exception. That frog image is adorable. I had never heard of Gamsol before so I had to google it to see what it was. Love the inside sentiment

  4. Adorable card, and the frogs are too. Love that perfect inside sentiment!

  5. Super fun card Ida. Love how yo interpreted the sketch and lovely colouring on those frogs. Thanks for joining us at the Fusion Challenge. Tristan DT.

  6. I like the whimsy of this card, and the colors are cute together 😊
