Sassy Cheryl Fishing mishap card

Hello Again!
MyGraficO has some really talented designers
Sassy Cheryl is one of the newer ones.
Her designs are really beautiful ... so go check her out. 

 I used the Fishing Mishap digital image. When I saw the image I thought of frogs, so I punched a few from a foam sheet. The green scraps from my last project were perfect for lily pads for them to sit on. I used the cuttlebug folder mesh to make them look real. I used my prisma markers to color in the image. I used silver stickles on the hook & other metal parts of the fishing  pole. I also used several blue stickles for the water.
I used the EK boarder punche swiss cheese to make the cute "bubbles" along the edges and misc papers.
overall its a pretty simple card  with alot of work in the details... ; )

Thanks for looking!

MyGraficO challenge # 35

A day late due to my new pc not having everything installed so I could upload my new creations...

for this Mygrafico challenge the team was asked to create something with the colors
 Pink, Olive Green, & Brown

I have to say this was a bit of a challenge for me at first 
I just couldn't find any Olive Green or Brown paper in my stash.
I guess that means I need to get more stuff! =D
I did eventually find some pieces from a scrap pack I bought a while ago.

the Stamp set we had to choose from was...Keys to my Heart by Sara Paris

Hope you all like the card I made...

Thanks for looking!
 Don't forget if you play along you could win this set!
All you have to do is upload your project link using the colors pink olive green & brown to the Mygraficochallenge blog in the challenge #35 post and your entered to win! Yay!   You can also play along tomorrow for the Wensday DT blog hop so join that too!

 Stickles - gold, candy cane pink,  and diamond
Papers- Misc from scrap pack
Digital stamps- Keys to my Heart - by Sara Paris  found at
Cuttlebug Embossing folder- mesh
 I cut the embossed heart's edges to make fringe, stickled all the edges to finish them and made hearts along the outer edges of the card.

Hope you all enjoy the pictures!

Front View of the card
Here you can see the dog house which I attached to the left side of the cards opening

The base of the card was cut and colored to look like dog eared wood fencing

An upclose view of the card front.

Here you can see the card opened , Left a spot for journaling a quick note on the left 

 up close you can see I cut out 2 dog bones to hold the gift card & lined the inside of the card for stability and to cover the marker mess...

I do have one thing not added that I will photgraph in the morning
