Twisted Frogs



Well it's the weekend again & we have had some lovely sunshine again. I have had chance to tidy my desk & get a card created, so I thought I would get a Xmas card made.

I love my Easel Cards, but this time I thought it was about time that I had a go at a Twisted Easel card. I used this great stamp featuring some adorable frogs. I stamped them onto pearlescent card & coloured it with Promarkers. I added stickles to their hats & edged the circle with stickles too.

Here is a closeup. The flowers are made with a die. I have to say I do have a soft spot for Poinsettias. The gold edging around the card has been made by cutting strips off holographic peel offs as I had none in my stash. x Clare x
