Bullfrogs & Butterflies

We're back from Guam and just in time to make my card for this week's Delightful Inspiration challenge. This week's image is "Bullfrogs & Butterflies". You can see more of the many wonderful Designed2Delight Digital stamps here. For this image, I thought at once the googly eyes I have in my stack of embellishments and just perfect for the bullfrog's  eyes! I made a simple layout for my card 'cause I'm thinking of a card for a guy. I always make girls' cards and only a few for young boys or guys. Generous of Faith to include sentiments for this week's image and good for me 'cause I don't have to spend time searching for the right sentiment. I only have a day to make my card and I think "Oh Hoppy Day" is just so cute for my design. And tadahh, here's my card:
I love paper-piecing flowers because it gives them texture and life. This time however, I doubled the petals and just attached the center with a brad on the second one. The polka dot design was in plain white and black dots so I just colored them to match the background paper. I think this would really be useful because I can always color it according to the color scheme of my projects. For the bullfrog's eyes, I intended to use a different set which is really perfect for this image. It was with green lids and black lashes and smaller in size. But poor me, while I was letting the twinkling H20's dry on the bullfrog, I lost one of the pair and couldn't find it. I only have one set so I have to settle for the plain one with no lids and lashes.
