I have another Winking Frog Collection project for you today! This week I have this cute frog hanging onto a lily pad like an umbrella. This would be a perfect card to send someone to cheer them up!
The frog image is from the Froggy Hangout set that I colored with pencils and mineral spirits and used the matching die to cut it out. I then stamped the image and sentiment together on white cardstock, colored the raindrops and popped the first image over the uncolored one. The "frame" was made using one of the card panels from the designer papers that I cut the center from with Cut Mat Create 1A Die.
Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the cute and springy cards the designers have for you!
