Pop It Ups Unfrogettable

I am entering this Pop It Ups Lots of Pops into the Spectrum Noir Challenge all about animals/critters.  Here's their link if you want to play along too

I stamped my image from the stamp set Unfrogettable (retired) onto Very Vanilla & colored in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I followed their tutorial on how to create those clouds, not too bad for my first try but I will keep practicing.  I colored the ground & added some grass too.  I die cut the main image using Accordian Fancy Label die, the banner comes in the Lots of Pops set.  Since I used the largest Accordian Fancy Label die in the set, to get the Pacific Point mat around the image I die cut 2 of them in Pacific Point & cut them (one horizontally & the other vertically) then glued them behind the Very Vanilla.  I added some Wink of Stella to the dragonfly wings, Cyrstal Effects to the heart & Enamel Accents to the eyes of the frog & dragonfly.  To get the black dots of the eyes, I squirted some black onto scrap paper & used my paper piercing tool to drop little drops of black into the center of the white.  Tie some Pacific Point ribbon to the bottom & let's move on to the inside....

I used Agatha Edges to cut the beautiful edges on the top & bottom of the card, also included is that pretty scroll that fits both of the edge dies in that set.  I sponged Marina Mist onto the top portion & spritzed with water.  The clouds & grass is from Garden Bench Pop Up.  I ran the clouds (also could be snow mounds) through my polka dot EF & sponged them just a bit.  I die cut another Lots of Pops in Garden Green just to cover the pop up area, then glued the grass to each pop out & then all my images.
Here's a close up...

I hope you like it as much as I do, those frogs make me laugh.  Thanks for stopping by & all comments are appreciated.
