Happy Leap Year!

Hello everyone!  Today is Leap Year and also the start of another challenge from The Papercraft Star!  This week's theme is to include a leap year frog in your projects.  For my card I went with some bright pattern papers from Making Memories called "Flutter".  I started with some baja breeze card stock and matted the patterned dot paper.  The image is from Stampin Up called "Frolicking Frogs", which is colored using Copic markers.  What a fun and lazy looking frog just chilling out on his pad!  I used Spellbinders labels 4 die to cut out the image and added some coordinating buttons to the bottom.  That does it for my card!  I hope you enjoy this extra day in February and take some time to play along.  For more inspiration stop by the rest of the design team members.   Our spotlight designer this week is Sylvia.  If you haven't already stop by and take a peek into her world!  Wishing you happy crafting!
