A Happy Birthday Ladybug

Hey there! I videoed myself creating today's card so that you could see how I made it! I must warn you though, it's a little rough. I'm still working on developing my skills and I tend to be way too picky when it comes to being crafty. Normally it's fine but when trying to video the card making process, it makes things difficult! Haha! I also had problems with my camera battery dying without me realizing it! So frustrating! Anyway, I won't go into detail on the card in this post since you can watch it for yourself in the video!

A Froggie Birthday!

Hello everyone! I have to apologize for my previous post. I swear to you that I typed up this huge description but for some reason, it never posted. We have had some serious internet issues so I am not sure if they are related or not. I thought about retyping the post but after being without the internet for almost a week, I am too lazy to retry. Haha! I figured, after the long break, it was probably great to see a card in general!

Anyway, I was hoping to get this card posted earlier in the week too but wasn't able to. I created this card for my nephew who LOVES frogs. I used the Deconstructed sketch challenge from last week and paired it with this fun paper from the 6x6 paper pack by Lime Twist called Out of the Blue. I just love this paper! The cute little frogs are from the Penny Black set called Toadily and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. I colored the frogs with my Copics, layered the image panel on a piece of Old Olive cardstock cut using my Spellbinders Labels Eighteen. 

Here is a closer look at my image.

Welp, that's all for today's card! I hope you like it! Let me know if you have any questions!
