Watch this video to see how to make the “We Don’t Have It All Together” Winking frog.
This completed card measures 14.7 cm x 20.8 cm.
Make a tent fold card base from the 300gsm cardstock to measure 14.7 cm x 20.8 cm. Find the design paper in the paper pad collection. Cut to 14.6 cm x 20.7 cm. 
Distress the edges with the distressing tool. Adhere to the card base with double sided foam tape or foam dots. Taking the Aquarelle paper, stamp and color all the images. Die cut with the matching dies. Cut a few extras to support the paper and to make chipboards from the layers. Trim the Frog border to separate the different frogs as seen in the photo.

Shape the Lily’s and adhere together. 

Add the prills and glitter to the Lily’s. 

Stamp and cut strips from the sentiment, apply ink to all the edges. The sentiments will be adhered with foam dots or tape. 

Using the circle die from the Stately circles set, die cut the stamped image of the Frogs under the mushroom. 

Taking the Ornate Borders die cut the frame so the borders will peep out from behind the circle. Taking the Raindrops on Roses die, cut this twice. Cut both in half so you have four lace borders. Ink all the lace border edges, including the circle. 

Make a ribbon from the ribbon. Adhere all to the card front. Adding layer by, layer and applying foam tape or foam dots as needed to keep the height balanced. Glitter is added to the raindrops and the lace border edges to help the card to pop.

Don't you love these little critters!?! Love the borders...and the little frog with the crown is the fav of the month... Don't forget to go on back to the Heartfelt Creations blog to check out all the rest of the eye candy over there. Have a fun week,
