Copics Colour challenge and Mojo Monday!

So I have a new card for you today that combined two challenges. First was the Copics Colour Challenge The challenge was to use the colors
B02-Robin's Egg Blue
R05 - Salmon Red
YG23 - New Leaf
The only one I had was B02 so I used the R27 for the red and then combined Y02 and
G14 to get a YG color.

I then used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week for my layout.

I really like the way this card turned out and the way the red pops. The image is from SU! Frogs and Flies. I stamped and colored the little frog several times and then layered to make him 3D. I coated the jar of flies several times in Diamond Glaze to get a glass like effect. Stickles were added to the water to make it sparkle. I used my cuttlebug to emboss some of the cardstock and then used my sewing machine to add some stitching. The inside is also finished and has a lot of room for a handwritten note.

On a side note I was sad that I never received my Penny Black stamps in the mail. They were apparently delivered but not to my address. I am going back and forth with the post office now to try and track them down but I am worried it is a lost cause. I really think they may have been delivered to some neighbors who are not as honest as we all hope our neighbors are and they decided to keep them. I am hoping the postman might remember the package though and where he left it (we get our neighbors mail all of the time so I think our postman isn't always paying attention). I was so looking forward to playing with these stamps and still holding out hope that they may show up at my door! I do plan to go stamp shopping next week so I will have some new stuff to share! I do LOVE getting new stamps!

Hope everyone is having a great week!
