Frog Prince

My second post for today is a card I made for challenge #4 at Whimsical Wednesday which is to create a project to celebrate the Royal Wedding.

I know that most of the entries are beautiful and elegant cards, but I wanted to have a little fun with it, so I came up with this:



It was my first easel card and I had so much fun making it. Hope you enjoy it!

Supplies used: cardstock - kraft, 2 shades of green, two shades of pink, gold glitter; patterned paper - Making Memories; google eyes - JoAnne's; heart punch - Martha Stewart; button and twine - my stash; font - Cloister Black Light

Thank you for taking the time to comment, it means a lot to me!!

What a fun card. You did a great job with your first easel card. I took the fun and playful route too...nothing wrong with that:) Love the sentiment! It is so true too, most of us have to kiss a lot of frogs before finding our prince. I am glad that you enjoyed the challenge. Thank you for playing along at Whimsical Wednesday.
