Anyone for a swim!!

Hi it's Susan here, well I couldn't resist this frog, just had to make a card to show her off.

I have used a great sketch from Cute Card Thursday, love sketches!!!!!

My backing papers are a mixture, the flowery one is from a Papermania pack that we bought ages ago. The beautiful green and pink muted papers are from Daisy Doodles. These two particular papers are from the Summer Collection, what a beautiful selection of colours in the collection, you will love them, go over and see for yourself!!

All the edges of the papers were distressed, just because I like doing it and like the effect it has on the finished card!!

The ribbon and lace is from our local market.

Isn't she just the most adorable goddess of a frog!!!!

Her name is Beach Baby Jayme, and she is a free download, she was designed by Crissy Armstrong. I coloured her in with Pro-Markers, and slightly coloured in the edges of the background with inks. I distressed the edges to match the rest of the card.

The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts, I slightly coloured the edges with inks before gluing them in place. The small blossom flowers I made myself.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan

  5. Wow this is one foxy frog!!!
    You've shown her off to perfection with your colouring Mam. I must admit to not noticing the background at first because I couldn't stop looking at the image and laughing at how funny she looked!! After going back and staring at your full card I think the patterned paper is beautiful and the lace over the green paper is also a wonderful touch. Really love how bright and bold this card is Mam.
