...Our sponsor this month is...

I don't have a stamp by STAMPlorations so used this cutie.
 ...For This Card - Step By Step...
Stamped the frog image/text using the stamping tool.
Cut out the frog image/text using a frame die.
Used the same die to cut out the red cardstock frame.
Used the next size up to cut out the white and green cardstock frame.
- For the next four steps be sure to center all frames -
Rotated the white frame as a diamond shape.
Using tape attached the green frame as a square shape to the white frame.
Using tape attached the red frame as a diamond shape to the green frame.
Using tape attached the image/text frame to the red frame.
 White cardstock for the card base.
Cut green crimped paper and attached with tape to the center of the card.
Taped the image/text frames to the center of the card.
Cut out two sizes of tags and then used a metal fastener to connect them.
Then taped the tags onto the card slightly under the frame.
Using Ad-tech glue and tweezers, I attached the 'With Love' die cut to the card.
 Cut out the flowers and rolled them up, then glued the end to the roll.
 Using tweezers, I curled the inside of the flower tighter and glued in place.
Using the tweezers I curled the edges of the flower petals.
Then I glued the flowers onto the card using Gem-Tac glue.
Attached two sizes of cut out sticker hearts to the card and tag.

- My beautiful daughter cut out the hearts with a punch while she was sick in the hospital. We did crafts when she was able. I am happy to still have and use some of those things. 
I miss her so very much! -
