A Froggie Hello

THE STUDIO...Happy Thursday everybody! There's a new challenge over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week's optional twist is "Anything Goes"!
I used an image from Oak Pond Creations, our sponsor for September. I love this little frog, he makes me think of Kermit the Frog from the Mupppet Show. I loved this program as a child, and I had a mug with Miss Piggy, a puzzle with Animal and a pajamas with the whole crew. I colored the frog using Promarkers in  different shades of green, and I added glossy accent to the eyes. The papers are from Doodlebug Design. I used a die to make the leaves (I believe it's from Poppy Design). I mounted it onto a piece of thick cardstock to get it raised from the background. I did the same with the sentiment, made with a die from Dienamics.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Love to Create - Fussy Cut
2) Allsorts - #277 Based on a film title (The Muppet Movie)
3) Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - #47 Anything Goes, Twist Spots or Dots

I love this Pia. Such a fabulous image and your design is wonderful, really made me smile.
I used to love the Muppets too. I had a Kermit hand puppet, he has such a great expression on his face!

Lisa M said...

Ohhhhhh I love this! Too, too stinking CUTE. My kids have basement rooms with climb out window wells and in each of their windows there are plants growing that house shelter and shade for frogs of all sizes. You can't go in their rooms without watching them. Usually 1 or 2 are on the window just hanging out. Immediately fell in love with this card when I saw it. Never knew frogs were so adorable until nature made us adopt about 20 of them. ;)
Hugs to you,
