Bathing Frog

Happy Friday! I'm here to show you my card featuring the Freebie Friday frog, you can pick it up at no cost in the Bugaboo store.

I made the card base using stitched rectangle and oval dies from Dienamics. A bit of ink and embossing powder used at the top part inside the frame, a piece of Kaisercraft DP at the bottom.
I made waves using a die from Memory Box and ripped a leftover piece of kraft to make the sand.
I had planned to add the frog standing neatly in front of the waves, then changed my mind and wanted it to look like it was taking a dive.
The sentiment is cut out from a Kaisercraft DP.
A bit of fun, a bit of quirky, and with lots of summer feel.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) 4 Crafty Chicks - #256 Sun, Sea & Sand
2) Simply Papercraft - #9 Anything Goes
3) Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
4) Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes

Oh my goodness...Pia, this is simply adorable! I am in love with your water/waves, so cute! And your sweet little frog is just so incredible diving into the water! So much fun.

DH likes frogs (I'm ok with the cute ones. The 'real' ones give me the creeps!) This little green guy with his big smile and his beach attire is just such fun. I love the way you've placed him in a dive position. Also like the way you've framed the scene with the oval frames, and the bright little checks on the under mat. Love the stitching on the outer frame. I DO like my stitchy mats! Cute sentiment to spark up things too. Have a great wkend, TFS (Carol sent me the SCS link, so the post was edited - if you want to see the SCS tutorial for the herringbone).
