Frog Prince

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Memorial Day Holiday 2019.

It is such a beautiful, sunny and warm day here. So perfect for the start of the summer season. That's usually the billing that this holiday gets.

There was a parade in our community to honor veterans today. And, last night there was a fitting tribute to veterans on the PBS channel. It was so moving.  I want to take this opportunity to honor all my family and friends who have served in the United States military. It's because of your service and bravery we have the freedoms that we do.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for a weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog and also for the sketch challenge #748 on Splitcoaststampers.

Today, I am featuring the Frog Prince die. I got my inspiration from the book of the same name that my 8 year old granddaughter just read. She likes it when I send her a card that is similar to the book that she just read. She saves them all. So this one will make her laugh. Let's get started with the details on how I created the card. 

I liked this week's sketch #748 from Splitcoaststampers. I knew the slightly off center panel would work for my main frog image and also allow my designer paper to be seen.  
I cut my frog prince in Stampin'-Up granny apple green cardstock and layered him on a white background. I sponged some clouds and a little green slope and attached him with dimensional adhesive. 

The 3 little frogs are from the Garden Gnomes 1 stamp & die combo. I colored them with Stampin'-Up Blends alcohol markers and used the die to cut them out. 

I stamped my sentiment on white cardstock and used a corner rounder on the corners. For the layering panel I used the 2nd largest of the stitched rounded rectangle die. The image panel is also attached with double sided tape. I moved it a little more to the left to accommodate the other frog images. 
 The little frogs are attached with dimensional adhesive. I tuned one on his head just to make him a little silly. 
To finish off my card I attached the sentiment with double sided tape. Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
