"Toadally" In Love tag

*** 6/25/13 Top 3 Award at The Kraft Journal! ***

I just cannot believe this year is half over! Where the heck has it gone?! ;) Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog is already embarking on Challenge #8 and we're being sponsored by none other than Bugaboo Digi Stamps! The theme is "No Cards Allowed!" You know what that means - anything BUT a card! Come play with us!

Bugaboo always generously provides our DT with images to work with and when I saw this toad, I knew I had to have it! I had an awesome time in the scrap room creating this tag for my hubby's birthday... a cardboard box flap... a paper-pieced toad... layer upon layer. But WITHOUT a bunch of glitter, bling and girly stuff! That's really hard for me. I did settle, though, with a jute ribbon bow, entwined hearts charm, some Liquid Pearls and LOTS of green! Hehehe! I hope he likes it! ;)

I'd love to enter the hubster's birthday tag into the following challenges:

  • Cardboard box flap
  • Bugaboo "Toadally In Love" digital image and sentiment
  • The Paper Cut Brown Bag (kraft) cardstock; Marco's red cardstock; dark green and lime green cardstock from stash
  • Light green/white plaid and dark green/white striped paper from stash; medium green handmade paper from stash
  • Burlap
  • Spellbinders Lacey Ovals and Big Scalloped Rectangles dies
  • Stamp Camp Whimsey Squared stamps
  • VersaMagic Hint of Pesto dew drop ink 
  • Sakura Stardust pen
  • Versamark; Ranger green and gold embossing powders
  • Copics: R27, G09
  • Jute ribbon
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology pin; entwined hearts charm from stash
  • Bisque Liquid Pearls
  • Small bronze ball chain
