Wow... it's Friday Baby!! I can't wait until the weekend. Today I have a super cute card to share. I was first introduced to this company by the stamping genius that is Lauren Meader. She made the cutest little nurse project! I was hooked immediately but waited to order since the budget was tight. Then I saw my good friend Kirsten make the cutest princess set and I just broke down and bought the Billy and Lily sets from Pink Cat Studio! Needless to say I am a WIMP when it comes to cute stamps. (Just don't tell the hubby!) Anyhow today Billy is making his appearance. I colored him in and then added some crystal effects to the froggy. I wanted him to look like he was slimy *yucko*. Next I went looking for the perfect patterned paper. I found this cute striped piece from the Scenic Route collection but couldn't find a contrasting piece. So I made my own! I started with some Kraft card stock and punched out some circles in various sizes. I used SU red, Olive, and Tempting Turquoise. I glued them on including some coming off the paper edge. I then flipped the card stock and using an Exacto knife I trimmed the overlapping circles. I finished it off with some paper piercing. I really like how it turned out :)
That's all for today but tomorrow brings a special Mother's Day card dedicated to all the mommies of the world...and especially my blog readers!
