Last evening it got below 30 degrees here! In Florida! So, when I went out to get the dog food this morning, I was frightened by a TOAD! It had buried into the food and was just staring at me after I scooped it up and dumped it into Dog's bowl! (Dog is HIS NAME! Hey, I didn't name him! 2 year old Markie did! LOL) I dumped the whole bowl back in the container and called Mark to have HIM feed the dogs! LOL!
So, I was certain I would be using this frog today! LOL! I LOVE Basic Grey's Sultry paper, and it fit this color combo perfectly! I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with SU! markers. Next, I used an aqua painter to blend the colors. I cut it out and mounted it with foam tape.
The corner embellishments were cut with a Cuttlebug die. I sponged the paper with Old Olive to darken it.
The button/brads are from K&Company. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.
I embossed the white background with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Such a cute card, and I love the color combination. I know what kind of frogs your talking about as we have them here in SE Georgia too! We also have the ones that stick to your windows at night. Let me tell you those are a lot of fun to find in like a freeze dried state in you window tracking while washing windows. lol TFS
