What If? Wednesday at Repeat Impressions

Woohoo!  It's another hump day and day to celebrate a "What If? Wednesday" sketch with us at The House That Stamps Built    -  and just look at the funtabulous sketch Wendy has come up with this week!!!

Here's my interpretation of Wendy's sketch and some detail of the technique I used.

For my card I used Repeat Impression images #7120-L and #3935-F for the sentiement which I cut up and glued within the image.

I decided to flip Wendy's sketch in order to use this cute frog stamp.....don't you just giggle when you see this stamp?  I sure do and here in the Northeast it's peeper time - tiny frogs that sing away all night long, boasting they are the best mate in the pond hoping to win the lovliest amphibian heart from among them and calling out "It's spring, let's party"  It's a delightful sound (to me) and this image made me think of them.  

If you click on the card image and enlarge it, you'll see the micro-fine glitter technique I used called "Colored Microfine" from the April/May 2012 issue of Technique Junkies Newsletter.   I  couldn't seem to get a clearer photo of the micro-fine glitter - it makes the image look a little "blurry", yet the card in real life looks fabulous!
Gina K Pure Luxury "Ocean Mist cs was used for the base, as well as  "Sweet Mango" for the edging.  Echo Park "Splash" dp was used for the layering.    The buttons and white flowers are also from Gina K Design

Come on over to The House That Stamps Built get the details and then join us in the sketch challenge.  You might just win some fabulous Repeat Impression stamps!!!!   

Thank you for stopping by and for those who leave comments - HUGS!

What a great card, Cheri! Love the way you flipped the sketch, the papers, and the sparkle. Love the way you layered the flowers, too. I believe I have some just like that and I'll have to try to remember to do that.
