Jumping Frog!

The inspiration for this card came from a tutorial on You Tube by StampWithHeather. He is sooo cute!!

I punched and inked five ovals from Old Olive and one from Certainly Celery, one 1 3/4" circle from Old Olive, two 1/2" Old Olive circles and three small flowers with the Boho Blossoms punch in Certainly Celery. The head is made using an oval as the mouth and the two 1/2" circles for the eye bases. The eyes are from the Sweet Pea felt flowers and the tongue is punched from Pretty in Pink using the Word Window punch. The Certainly Celery oval is stuck on the 1 3/4" circle and a small flower is cut in half for the hands. The remaining four ovals are attached together, and then to the body, using brads. The last two small flowers are attached to the bottom of the legs AND through the card base to secure the frog to the card. As it is only the feet attached to the card, the frog with 'jump' up and down by pulling/pushing his head.

The A6 landscape card base is So Saffron and it is decorated with co-ordinating Sweet Pea designer papers.

Can't stop playing with it...................!
