Guest Designer Spotlight for Penny's Paper Crafty Challenges Blog

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart got mixed up on dates and I forgot to make my own post this week for the #500 challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges blog!! Luckily I made the card about 3 weeks ago and sent the photo to Geesje!!! A few weeks ago one of my cards I linked to PPCC got picked for top honor and I received 3 free images from Pattie's Creations and then I got to pick this delightful frog digital image from Twinkle Lane Designs to use for my GD card project. My heart has been so blessed. June was also my birthday month, so getting the surprise free images was like another birthday gift.

This cute frog card was given to my great aunt who lives near us and she's got several frogs in her front yard, so I thought she'd enjoy the image. Her birthday is the day before mine! My mom was in labor on her bday but I took my time and was born the next morning! :)

  1. What a fun card Becca - love the way you mounted the image on the offset circles - that is really eye catching
    Stay safe

    1. Thanks, Maxine! I wanted it to sort of look like a larger lily pad and then the swirl teal paper to be like water. Gray base for cloudy rainy looking sky....

  2. Your little frog looks perfectly happy sheltering under his leaf umbrella! Thanks for playing along with us at Seize The Birthday 🥳


My heartfelt thanks for visiting my blog.
