DCM - fish or frog

This week it's Rein who sets the dare. She would like us to put a fish or a frog on our card :o)

I decided I wanted my froggy to be stuck out on acetate to look like he was bouncing over the flower. Could I find my acetate??? Nope! This is the 3rd time in as many weeks that i have tried to find my acetate and it is nowhere to be found :o(

I ended up carving up some packaging from a cuttlebug die although it's a quite a bit thicker than acetate so there is no bounce. It still works and it also lays flat enough for the card to go in an envelope. The card is for a little girl called Ava who used to go to the same childminder as my two. They are going to her birthday party on Sunday.

Papers - Imaginisce
Frog - Cuttlebug die
Core-dinations card
Divine swirls embossing folder
Flowers from stash
Bazzill butterfly border
Papermania alphabet sticker
Doodlebug rub ons

Acetate is just brilliant at hiding. It then pops out and says "Here I am" when you least expect it and dont' want it anymore.

Great card, cute little froggy
