Froggie Easel Card

This is a picture of it closed

A close up of the water lilies

Happy Friday everyone! Here is a card that I designed and made using CCR. It took me awhile to figure this one out for some reason. I don't think my brain was all there! LOL!
I cut the card base by welding 2 circles together and an oval that was slightly bigger than the lily pad. I cut the mat layers for the front using a circle and a scallop circle. The lily pad and frog were cut from Create A Critter. I cut 2 lily pads so I could add the second one to the top of the scallop circle and trimmed around it. I inked the edges of the frog and stamped the eyes with the owl face from Peachy Keens Critter faces. For the banner I hand cut triangles and added twine to the top and bows. The water lilies were cut from Flower Shoppe. I cut several layers for each one and bend the ends up. The centers were also cut from Flower Shoppe and when they were put together I sprayed them with Pearl Mist. To finish I added a hand cut tag and stamped it and the lily pad with stamps from Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiments.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. Birthday Sundaes- Easel Birthday card
2. Die Cuttin Diva's- Anything Goes
I hope you all like my card and thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
