Hoppy Valentine's Day - CCJC4

I am so proud of myself :)  I created this little punch art frog to match my valentine paper....it's also my entry in the Create with Connie and Julie challenge this week (see the blinkie on my sidebar to the left)

I found these frog candies and already had this froggy themed paper so I thought it would make a cute valentine gift for one of my kids' teachers, she LOVES frogs!
I decided I wanted to try to  make an embellishment to match the paper (the paper is by K & Company) to decorate the packaging....so I pulled out all my punches and went to work.  I used several round punches in various sizes, a heart punch and the large oval punch.  Colors used are old olive, pretty in pink, real red, very vanilla, basic black and pixie pink cardstock.  I sponged the edges of the frog with gable green ink.  I used a bone folder to score my paper, punched the edge with the scallop edge punch, and used SNAIL adhesive to make my belly band and stick on the frog.

Here's the card I made to go with it:
