Color Throwdown #60

Happy Wednesday!   I want to thank the many people that have signed up to follow or subscribe to my blog--for some reason, the numbers have been jumping, and I so appreciate it!  It is fun to hear from everyone!  Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp!, and you need to check out the CTD blog to see the generous gift they're offering this week! 

It's my turn to be the hostess this week and I have chosen some "jumpin'" colors!!!  Here ya go:

60 swatch

Can you handle these colors?  Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery and link it to Mr Linky on the CTD blog by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday to be in the running for our Featured Stamper!!!  You might even be chosen from the FS gals for September to be the Guest Designer for November!  We have been seeing some awesome submissions, so put your creative caps on!  This is what I came with for this week:

I am not sure what you call this style of fold--it is sort of a mountain/valley fold, but only on part of the card.  I got a card like this from a friend, and I thought all these cute little frogs from the set "Frogs Jumping for Joy" would look neat on this type of card.  Here are a couple other views:

I don't have any Copics the in my challenge colors, so I had to do with my SU markers---not the best, but let's face it, frog skin is kind of mottled anyway! LOL!  My one regret, and I may go back & add it, is that I should have glittered up the water and maybe some stars!  You can never go wrong with some glitter!  This was a fun card to make, and if I have time, (and anyone wants it), I will try to refine the cutting/scoring measurements for this little cutie! 

Now let's see what the others have come up with:
