Bullfrog and butterflies

I was asked by Faith at
Delightful Inspiration
to be a Guest Designer at Card Ideas Challenge! I was tickled pink to be asked. I make a card each and every week just to get the freebie that is offered for joining the challenges. My Spellbinders Pennants had just arrived so it was the perfect op to use them here with Bullfrog and of the newest images of Faith's. The largest pennant is quite long so I just chopped off the top! don't you just love the lacey pennant in the back and how the two fit just perfectly?

I used a sketch from SFYTT over at Jen's blog, 'I heart 2 stamp'.

Tried coloring that bullfrog in two different colors for a more realistic looking froggy, but didn't manage what I had set out to do, but I still think he's the best looking bf around. Popped up the turquoise flower and cut out and double popped up the double set for an accent at the top left. Couldn't stop there...three wee ones at the bottom. The page in the background is from a Jimmy Buffet novel that is one of my go to books for typed backgrounds. Stay tuned....Faith asked me to join the Card Ideas and create 'something' using Debbie F's challenge. That should be up on April 23rd at Card Ideas, the challenge blog for D2D. I'll have it here on my blog, so stop by for the link!!
