Leapin' Frog!

I told you I had another frog card to share this week. This is another image in the Penny Black clear set called Toadily, which you can view here. Aren't these frogs C-U-T-E???

I colored him in with Copics and did the color pushing technique with the clear blender pen. It is easy peasy and creates such a great effect! I used the Coluzzle to cut the oval, cutting up to my stamped image and trimming the rest by hand. I added a second layer to the flower. After cutting out the brown layer with a Nestie die, I used one of the Cuttlebug thin embossing folders just along the bottom edge. The DP is from the MM Chloe's Closet pad I bought awhile ago.
I am keeping it short, one more day of work for the week!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
