Happy Frog!

Good morning. After a very busy Easter weekend i'm back to this addictive blogging. Its so nice to make a card and share it with other crafters so hope you like it xx

I stamped this image using a Pepper & Friends wooden stamp - its so cute. I coloured it using pastel shades of my Whisper Strokes pen set. I haven't used these pens for a while now but not posesssing any promarkers I decided to give it a go and i'm pleased with the results. I distresed the edges of shape with VersaMagic chalk ink - pixie dust. The shape itself was cut using a Go Kreate large frame - frilly.




Petal Pairs from Tonic Studios










I bought these two punches from the NEC last November and just love making flowers with them. These were made using cream paper and distressing it using VersaMagic chalk ink - Ocean Depth.



I covered my card blank with a paper from Prettysimple pastel color collection and distressed again using VersaMagic - Aspen Mist. I double mounted the stamped image and raised it up. I added a best wishes sentiment and in the top right i used 3 raindrop brads from my stash to complement the water theme. I added the handmade petal pairs flowers with 2 more from my stash and also some pearl bead ribbon. A pink dragon fly brad was added to the image.

 I hope you enjoy this card and happy crafting.
