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
