Frogs on Lily Pads... for a birthday!

Today's project was really fun!

The challenge set by swap sisters was to make a card or page using this sketch:

So first I went shopping to get some cute frogs - I wanted something that would really pop off the lily pad! And I found some cute ones in the $2 shop - the pack had about 8 in there I think.

Now the reason I wanted a frog card is because my niece is turning 9 shortly and we are celebrating her birthday tomorrow - she's getting a frog terrarium thingy which is something she's been wanting for a very long, long time - she's always been frog obsessed.

So here's my card!

The lily pads are stamped with Vintage Labels - a free set during Sale-A-Bration when you order $100 product from Stampin' Up! and I punched them out with the Wide Oval Punch.

The leaf stamp is from Good Neighbors - another free set that arrived this week!

If you'd like an invite to join Swap Sisters - just leave me a message and I'll send you an invite. You don't have to be a demonstrator to join - just love stamping.

Jenny this card is so adorable.

Using that stamp set on the oval punch lilly pads is such a great idea (one which I would never have thought of).

Great example of creativity!

Thanks for the shout out and participating in this week's Challenge.
