Lovin' the new stuff!

Yep, I am - lovin' the new stuff! I need a bunch of graduation cards this year, so these new sets are just perfect!! This is a card I made with the adorable frog from the Ms. Frog Grad set and the sentiment from the Mr. Frog Grad set.

I also used Fantasy Fiber for the star. This stuff is so cool! After I heated it to make 'fabric', I used my quickutz star die. The die didn't cut all the way through, which ended up being very cool because on this particular die, there are nested stars, so all I had to do was finish cutting the outside star and then there are graduated stars along the inside of that. I think you can see it pretty well if you click on the picture to enlarge it. That wasn't my original intent with it, but isn't that the way it goes sometimes :)

Stamps: Ms. Frog Grad, Mr. Frog Grad - 2RedBananas
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Paper: Making Memories
Other: Fantasy Fiber - Bellflower, Inkssentials white pen, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, pop dots, gems, quickutz star die

There you go with those darling (and apparently smart -lol) frogs AND the fun Fantasy Fibers again! I love how the star turned out (happy accidents are the BEST!), and the card's so cute I'm sure the card will be a big hit!
