Outlines Polka Dot Challenge-Meet Felix!


Polka Dots everywhere! You all know I hardly ever make a card without polka dots somewhere! They are pretty much a staple in my crafting room! What could be easier for me than a POLKA DOT challenge over at the Outline's blog HERE!!!
 
Our family loves little froggies...we have a froggie piggy bank that has been in the family for probably 40+ years that could probably be friends with little Felix LOL!

 I chose to float little Felix amidst all these fun polka dots! I colored him with copics and then gave him a few subtle polka dots(froggie freckles!) of his own with the copic blender pen.  I made the lily pad with an oval nestie that I snipped a bit and then added some chalk for contrast. I made the willows with a thin strip of kraft and used my SU! window punch to make the top part of the willow. A little shading with copics and they were done!

I added two pieces of blue waves that I punched with a Fiskars wave punch at the bottom of the blue circle. For the base of the card I used kraft cardstock  that was embossed with crisscrossing lines on my ScorePal. I finished it off with a little chocolate chip ribbon and it was finished...polka dots and all!
 

Please check out what the rest of the team has made for you today!

Excellent job coloring the frog, but I think it's the lily pad, cattails and waves that really make this card so fun and special!
