You Bring Me Joy

Today's card is pulling double duty today as I used the sketch from the Retro Sketches Challenge (RS#136) for the layout plus it also fits the Hope You Can Cling To (Hope Floats) Challenge (HYCCT1402) going over at Splitcoaststampers. Splitcoaststampers has paired up with the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center for a month long card drive benefiting those affected by breast cancer.

I cut the tag with the Paper Smooches Stitched Tag die from Neenah Classic Crest Natural White card stock. I stamped the lily pad from the Lawn Fawn Hello Baby set with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink, masked it and then stamped the leaves using MFT Sour Apple  and the cattail using Stampin' Up Baked Brown Sugar ink. I stamped the frog separately, colored with Copic Markers and then fussy cut out. I placed the frog on the lily pad image using dimensional tape underneath the head to give it some lift. I added a flower cut with The Cat's Pajamas Flower Button CutUps covered with Yellow Ranger Stickles and Hemptique twine at the tag top. I combined the tag with papers from the Pebbles Family Ties pad and stamped the sentiment from the The Cat's Pajamas Words of Love set. A Doodlebug enamel dot in the flower center and a smattering of Doodlebug sequins finished it up.

Products: Lawn Fawn stamp, The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, PTI and Neenah cs, Doodlebug enamel dot and sequins, Hemptique cord, Ranger Stickles, MFT and Memento ink, Copic Markers
Copics: YG0000, YG21, YG23, Y11, Y13, Y17
