Elzybells Pocket

Can you tell that I'm hooked on this paper? OMGoodness, I just love it! I'm also hooked on the new Elzybells. My card is for this weeks A Muse Addicts challenge which was to make a pocket card. Dang I hadn't made one of those in a very long time so I really wanted to try it out. I followed this tutorial by Beate. I used watercolor crayons to color my image in and then went over some of the parts with markers. Her dress is paper pieced on because that paper looks like a cute Spring dress to me. I added Stickles to the frog's crown and ripples in the water. My insert is on a piece of Kraft paper, then I just decorated the top part that shows. It's LOST night. I can not tell you how excited I am that it's starting back up!!!! Happy Stamping and happy watching if you are a LOSTie!!!

Stamps: Girl & Frog, sentiment (Elzybells), Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Not Quite Navy, Basic Grey Two Scoops (Hope Stamps Eternal), Kraft

Other: corner rounder, 1 1/4" circle punch, ribbon from Michael's, photo corner punch, Not Quite Navy brads, Earth Elements watercolor crayons, Stardust Stickles, word window punch, Terrifically Tacky Tape
