Well today is the big playoff game and Tony is imagining...


Here is my card for today's Inspiration Challenge: Butler Fabric. You can see the swatch of material I chose by scrolling down to "Pink/Lotus Pond" here.

Froggy is imagining that he is a Prince -- namely because his name is Tony Romo and he is thinking about winning the Cowboys/Giants game this afternoon. Then everyone WILL think he is a Prince.....he is also thinking about getting a new girlfriend......LOL...(I am definitely rooting for the Cowboys.....)

The pink BG DP is from Berry Bliss - there is a subtle pattern on it that is hard to see in the photo (I LOVE that paper!). The green brads and Froggy match exactly IRL -- the brads were closer to the light and thus look brighter. (Card is standard A2 size - it just looks as big as Texas in this picture!).

(I actually made this card for a challenge I have with a group of friends. We make a card for the Need a Lift forum every week and this one is for a teen who is battling cancer. Debils made our requirement to use Gable Green somewhere and that, combined with today's IC, made me think of these stamps and colors!)

Stamps: Unfrogettable, Lily Pad, Imagine by Heidi Grace, Sanded BG
Paper: Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Whisper White, Berry Bliss DP
Ink: Black Stazon, Gable Green, Rose Red, Rose Romance (retired), Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue
