A little bit froggie

DSCN3302 by Zoenuts


I need a card for my nephew's 8th birthday and I was having a pretty tough time thinking of something.  Then I came across Bitten By the Bug 2's Frog Challenge.  And a star was born! =P

This is my first shaped card. It was a bit tough. I know I'm doing something wrong because the sides didn't quite line up. But I guess practice makes perfect and they'll start lining up after I shoot out a couple more of these bad boys. But they are a lot of work (at least for me), so I might stay away from shaped cards for a bit.  



By the way, I may not use this for my nephew after all.  I'm cooking up something in my head and if it works out, then I'll use that. =)  But who knows...for me, things ALWAYS look better in my mind.  I hate when that happens!


Paisley (frog), Create A Critter (cupcake), Birthday Bash (b-day hat)
Paper: Papertrey Ink (base), The Paper Studio and Recollections (layers), DCWV (hat)
Stickles
Cuttlebug Cartridges (Divine Swirls, Distressed Stripes)

  2. Are you kidding me Ro? this is about the cutest thing EVER! Looks like it lines up to me, but if you had trouble, did you remember to flip your shapes before welding the card? Love his party hat and the cupcake is just yummy! I wouldn't want to give this one away. It's ADORABLE! Thanks for joining us at BBTB2. xxD
