This is a fairly quick card for today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A426) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT684) on Splitcoast. The first challenge has us fussy cutting & the second has us including bugs.

To make my card, I stamped the brick wall w/ gray ink then colored it w/ gray Copics.  The sky was sponged w/ a self made cloud stencil. I decided it was easier to just stamp Mr. Frog on a separate piece, color him & fussy cut him than try to mask out the wall & the original log the frog sits on.  I made a slit along the top of the wall to insert him & make it look like he was leaning on it. The little grass sprigs & ladybug were also fussy cut & added. The greeting was added on a thought/speech bubble along w/ some dragonflies

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS584), so a big congrats to Susy, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a lovely gallery & there are many I wanted to pick..for my card I chose THIS to case. I kept the cute camera & Bokeh bg, but I used different images & dies & added a little snapshot to mine.

To make my variation of the Bokeh background, I used a stencil I made quite a while back by die cutting different sizes of circles in a piece of copy paper. I sponged  the Distress inks thru the various sizes of circle masks, then I added a few sponged circles on top using white Brilliance ink. For the smallest circles, I used a pencil eraser. The little snapshot was made by die cutting a rounded square out of a rectangle die cut. I stamped part of the Palm Tree line on the back of a piece of vellum w/ Stazon & attached it to the back side of the frame.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Such a fabulous site Brenda chose for the Inspiration Challenge! I loved THIS w/ the sweet little birdhouse so it was my inspiration. 
For my card, I used the new Bird Feeder image (I love the little nuthatch!) &  wonderful greeting. Since it mentions stormy weather, I wanted the background to reflect that so after stamping & coloring the bird feeder, I masked it then sponged in the bg. I stamped the greeting then added a few raindrops I drew & cut out. I used a birds on a wire punch across a piece of black c/s then added strips of gray & red for contrast to the black layer. A little red bird was added just because…
