Party Hearty... Froggy card!!

Hello everyone!!! Today I have a card to share from my April stamping retreat that I forgot to post. This "Cutie Patootie" frog is so fun to play with... don't you think?

I started with bright colors for a kids b-day card, CB embossing my yellow cardstock, layered up the frog and adding a "Swirl" coming out of this mouth... he,he! I acutely took the SU! Swirls Scribbles die to get this effect. I added some paper piercing and used my circle punches to create "rings" for more fun!

Enjoy my stampin' friends!! Fun birthday card for a kid OR a grown up who is a "Kid-at-Heart"!! Have a super day and summer is coming... :)

Smiles... Michelle :)

Thanks for your great comments on my cards. I'm happy to see that you are also a Chai lover. I live for my Chai lattes. I actually don't drink coffee, so you nailed it right, that is a great big cup of Chai on my card with extra foam:)))
