Make It Monday: Frog with Circles

Well could it be a Make It Monday card that is actually posted by the deadline? I can't believe it myself. This week's challenge was to emboss with PTI dies. I just got the simple circle die in the mail yesterday! I embossed it on this lovely kraft card and then stamped the circles with a coordinating Simple circle stamp set. I die cut an arch with some hawaiian shores cardstock and also die cut the frog and lily pad. The frog and lily pad got the copic treatment. The sentiment is from Sending You. All supplies are PTI except for the buttons, those are from Doodlebug.

MIchele, this turned out so cute. I love the embossed circles on kraft and the buttons. I ordered the Simple Circles and can't wait to try them out, but didn't order the frog and now I wish I had!

Oh my word ... I just love this card, the colors, the layout, the embossing. Everything about it makes me smile. I haven't commented on a card in ages, but this one stands out as just too cute to not say something about it. Thanks for the inspiration. God bless you. Elizabeth S. in mid-Michigan.
