Happy Thursday! I hope your week has been Unfrogettable! I just love this little frog with the big eyes and wistful expression.

My little frog was stamped and colored with markers and I used a label die to cut it out. I left the die in place and sponged on the yellow and blue inks. The frog was actually stamped twice and I cut him out and attached him on top of the base image. That wasn't the original plan, but I didn't like the background on the first one so I saved the frog by cutting him out and redoing the background.

The olive and blue panels were also die cut. I left the dies in place, spritzed them with water and embossed them again with a piece of vinyl mesh on top. I love the texture it gives to plain card stock. On the blue panels, I stamped the 3 leaf background on top. I used rectangle dies on the textured yellow card stock and I used part of a large label die on the right side of the big yellow panel. The blue dots were added with a marker. I used a smaller label die to cut out the sentiment, sponged as before, then split it in two. It's all attached to a 5.5 x 4.25 (A2) white card. I used the Splitcoast sketch challenge SC278 and color challenge CC268 for this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
