Hoppy St Patrick's Day

This card was made from the 2017 March Calendars (free) in Cricut Design Space, modifying and eliminating the printed calendar and die-cut month and replaced with Text "Hoppy St. Patrick's Day. Froggie was stamped and colored with Copic alcohol-based pens, fussy-cut with The Brother, stamped with sentiment, adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape and adhered googly eyes.  

Close up of Googly Eyes ... crazy. 
Used the same design paper for the inside border of the card.

  3. Very cute. I love the reverse colour pattern where the background and the main scene change. Lots of work to assemble this! The play on words is great :)

    Beautifully done Suzanne! I love how some of the shamrocks and leaves are geen but white outside the rectangle frame. That's such a fun technique. Image and sentiment are perfect together!

    This is one darling card, Suzanne! Great sentiment and wonderful way to spotlight the color inside the frame.
