Toad-ally Awesome..............{Trendy Twine/ Little Scraps of Heaven Cross Promo}

Morning and welcome to a special 
Trendy Twine post!
Today a few of the Trendy Twine DT will be doing a cross promotion with
Little Scraps of Heaven Designs and showcasing the 
Cotton Candy Trio of Trendy Twine.

For my card, I made another easel...
(kinda obsessed with these lately)
and used the adorable "Bring on the Rain" file and Sky Trendy Twine 
Here is my card.....
Didn't this turn out CUTE????? I love that froggy and pairing him up with some peachy keen goodness...well you can just see his personalty popping out!
Here he is a bit closer. I cut him out using all scraps from my stash along with papers from Echo Park~ Paradise Beach paper pad. After inking the edges of my cuts using Distress ink in Broken China, Peeled Paint and Antique Linen I stamped his face using PKS~ Happy Lil' Frog. I did add some Sky TT bows to his boots and then bordered my bracket card mat with the same Sky Trendy Twine and tied a triple bow at the side.
This twine was a perfect match to my color theme and added just the right amount of extra embellishments the front of the card needed.
Finally here is the inside of my card....I did end up cutting some raindrops and gluing them to the sentiment as well as the front of the card....just thought it needed something more. I also added glossy accents to them for the look of actual raindrops. The sentiment is from Joy's Life Stamps~ Punny cute!

Supplies Used~
Trendy Twine~ Sky 
Peachy Keen Stamps~ Happy Lil' Frog (Cottage Cutz)
Joy's Life Stamps~Punny Animals
Echo Park Paradise Beach 6x6 paper pad
glossy accents, pop dots, distress ink, brads, flat back pearl

Well that is all I have for you today.....
I hope you like my card :)
