Just Because Frog



Hello everyone! Here is a card that I made for several challenges. I am trying to get some time in my craft room before the weekend. After that I will be in a car....BLAH! My son has his registration for college and the drive is 7 1/2 HOURS! So unfortunately I will be stuck in a car for most of the weekend.
For my card I cut the frog and umbrella from the Paisley cart. I hid the butterfly for the umbrella and did a stitching line.  Do you see that UBER adorable paper I used? When I saw that paper which is from the Doodlebug Sugar and Spice pad, I knew I wanted to use it on the umbrella! Those little frogs are too cute! I stamped the face on the frog using Peachy Keen Critter faces for the eyes and Everyday Character Face Parts for the mouth. I omitted the heart on the belly and added a flower button instead.  To finish I added the ribbon and stamped the sentiment. I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. Celebrate The Occasion- Just Because and must use pink
2. Simply Crafts- Umbrella from Paisley
3. Paper Playtime- Umbrella
4. Fantabulous Cricut- Buttons and Bows
