Double Trouble 83 - You're Un-FROG-etable!

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 83! 

The small graphic is shown below - please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for detailed information. 

Since a fun fold card is required for this challenge, I decided to do a Double Diamond Fold card. I first made one of these a few years ago when a friend of mine posted the instructions on her website. You can find that link here

The card front allows a decent space for the focal point. The frogs... I didn't have any stamps with frog images and had to borrow one from someone. The frogs were all stamped, coloured and fussy cut. I cut the lily pads from some Nestabilities dies and cut a V out of each. I also inked the edges of each lily pad and inked some of the top to add interest. The frogs were placed on the various lily pads and some were mounted with thin foam tape. There is a panel on the back where a message can be written. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this challenge.

I am also linking up my card with the Crafting Happiness challenge and the Creative Creases Challenge
