Oh Hoppy Day!!

The weather has been so lovely and my daffodils are in full bloom.  Though they say it is going to get colder, right now I am in the mood for spring.  I had this adorable little frog image, called Egg Rest, from Sparkle N Sprinkle and decided to make a fun “springy” card.

The image is heat embossed using VersaMark ink and Black Detail embossing powder.  I colored it with markers, cut it out, and added glitter.  I used a second image, All Ears, cut it out and added Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft.  I added this to the little frog’s head.  All of this is added to a Spellbinders Classic Oval die with the egg border from Easter Borders stamped along the bottom.  This is also colored with markers and glitter and Pine Grove Glitter Tinsel added.

The sentiment is also from the Easter Borders and is cut out with a Spellbinder tag die.  This is layered over pink tulips cut out with a border punch.  You can find complete instructions for this card here.

Make sure you return on Thursday, February 9 for Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Spring Fling Blog Hop!!

Marie, a fabulous card! Those poke-a-dots are cute as can be on the rick rack. The image is super darling! LOL Really brought a smile to my face - all glittery and colored perfectly in this froggy's Easter Best! His "home pond" is all springy, too!
