For You Froggie

Hello, everyone! I'm back again! This is my second post today!  This time I'm sharing a froggie card! I made this for a male family member who loves frogs. I tried to keep it masculine - you know I struggle with those! Hopefully he won't mind the sparkle!

This adorable image is called For You Froggie from My Stitch Back in Twine and it was available as a freebie at Creative Moments (thank you!). I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop him up on foam tape. I also added Glossy Accents to his eyes.

My card was inspired by the DCWV September Stack-a-holic card sketch:

Here are the other products used:
  • Designer paper:  DCWV Painted Petals Premium Stack 12" x 12" and Glitter Cardstock Stack -  Jewels 6" x 6"
  • Clear stamp:  Sentiment (Your Next Stamp)
  • Dies:  Frame (Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles), lily pad (Nellie's Multiframe Ovals)
  • Other:  Dragonfly and vellum from my stash

I would also like to support the following challenges: Crafty Catz AG Optional Ribbon and Pearls 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper September UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Inspired by Song (Kermit the Frog - "Being Green") 3/3;Creative Moments AG Optional Fall Colours 3/3; Deep Ocean AG UE; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 3/3; Just Keep On Creating AG UE; Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday 1E; Love to Scrap AG 4/5; Not Just Cards September AG UE; Perfectly Created Chaos Patterns 1/3; The Paper Girls Nature 3/3

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Kitty, you really rock this sketch! Beautifully elements choices for the card and that frog looks so at peace. This is simply too cute and will be un-frog-getable by the guy in your family! Well done! Have a lovely evening. Hugs.

This is really a cool card for a masculine recipient!! Fabulous! The frog looks very fun and the detail of the glossy accents on the eyes is a delight!!! Love the colours and the sparkling! I think that the sparkling isn't too much for a male! Well done, my friend!

loving the sentiment and the image. Masculine cards are always harder to make for me too, although this one is just lovely, lots of hugs and love, a bellyrub if they want one for Kiwi, Honeydew and Snowie, Marion

Frogs and owls, I never seem to get enough of them, they're so versAtile, perfect for persons of any age. This definitely has a masculine feel, I think the sparkle doesn't make it any less so. Cool!
