Frog Prince

A fun birthday card for a little prince! I love how the googly eyes change the frog's expression.
The girls at Lawnscaping Challenge Blog have set the task of colouring, oh such a chore ;) I enjoyed this so much I've used two media: I've coloured the frog using promarkers & the lily pad with distress inks. My lily was constructed using different sizes of daisy punches for the petals & stamen, then coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks & glittered. The heart die cut was folded in half, drenched in lots of green distress inks, shaped & raised on pop dots. I followed an old Sketch Saturdays sketch #251. It reminds me of a pond & there is a lovely royal banner that is perfect for Casual Fridays Challenge #104.  I love these two Lawn Fawn patterned papers (Bright Side collection) used together & all hidden flowers on a masculine card.
