Hoppy Hoppy Birthday

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  Our challenge hostess for July, Lynn McAuley continues to issue the challenges.

This week Lynn has given us a technique challenge – Watercolor Bokeh. There is a great tutorial on Splitcoaststampers that lets you know how it is done.

I decided to create a Centre Step card and decorated it using a Frog Stamp set from Woodware Stamps I purchased earlier in the year.

For the sentiment, I have used Elizabeth Craft Designs Alphabet 1 Caps die set. I also added two flies on the panel with the frog which are from the Pop It Ups Hoppy the Frog die set.

For the inside of my card, I added another small piece of my bokeh paper I created and also stamped the frog on each side of my white panel. I added the sentiment which is included in the frog stamp set.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
