Bitten by the Bug

Hello Again. :)
This post is very soon after my last one, but as the title says...I have been bitten by the crafting bug. The moment I had done enough revision to say I'd actually made an effort, I just had to try out making another card. For yet another challenge. 

Here it is: 

Another Happy Birthday card, and yet again not suitable for my sister...but I'm sure I'll find someone to give it too. :) I'm also not too happy with the way the frog image sits on the card and if I were to repeat the layout would put the image up on foam pads so it sat better.

This card was made using:
  • DoCraft Papermania "5x "7 White Card Blank
  • Make & Create Pearle-scent Card Cream
  • DoCraft Boofle Paper Pack - Cream with purple flowers and Green with cream dots
  • Woodware Craft Collection, Kid's Birthdays - Sentiment
  • Country Companions, Sunshine Meadows - Frog, Butterfly and ladybugs. 
  • Bling Bling Pearls Craft for Occasions
  • ColourPro Collection Colouring Pencils - Pink, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange
  • Make & Create Ribbon Pack - White Lacy Ribbon 
  • Unknown Manufacturer - Light Purple Lace

 The extra images all show the different elements of the card. I am planning to enter this card into Oozak.com's Challenge - 
 Anything Goes with Lace, Ribbon, and Pearls.
Hopefully it will do well. 


 Anyway, I will be heading off now. I have a very busy rest of my week ahead of me, so I'll post again when I have a moment. I might even have another card for you when I get back. Maybe (here's hoping I get time). :)

Take care. Bye for now.
