Pink by Design Two Year Anniversary Extravaganza: Challenge 8

Moving on to the eighth challenge!  That was to have a project with ribbons or bows.  I love having ribbon on the card, but I usually just wrap it around and tape it to the back of my layer. I am not good with bows at all!  It's always difficult for me to tie them, and then they never lie correctly.  I was still determined to put a bow on this card though.

The frog was cut from the Cricut Lite Playtime cartridge that came with my Cricut Expression from Walmart.  I didn't really like the images of the children on it, but then when I looked carefully, they did have some cute images on it as well, including this frog!  I thought it looked a little bland so I added white faux stitching to the lily pad.  Also, any time there's a layer for black for the eyes, I never cut the whole thing out.  I hate wasting that much paper, so I usually cut everything out and glue a small piece  of black over the holes that were cut out.

The sentiment is from Pink by Design, of course.  And so far I'm still sticking to the "don't-use-the-same-set-twice" thing!  This is from "Be Mine."
