Magnolia Spring Kit......

Good Afternoon!!
I got my Spring Kit from Magnolia yesterday
and just had to do a card today before I started
my housework! They are darling!!!

I played along in a couple of challenges:
First I used my punches for the Just Magnolia Challenge
and then Simon Says Stamp's challenge is Let's go to the movies
 so I did The Princess and the Frog.

I again added crackle paint to everything!! The papers
are from Memory Box which I got from the Stamp Show.
To get my frog in there I added a tag and sentiment from the kit.



Isn't he cute poppin' his head out there! The sentiment on it
was perfect for the Princess and the Frog movie:


I think he really pops on that Kraft paper!! I painted
his crown with Dragonfly twinkling h20's and a
white gel pen for the tips! They show up nicely on the Kraft.

Well thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you all get your kits soon!
They are all so cute! The princess theme is big in my house so
the girls love it as well and I am sure I will be stamping
them images all the time!! LOL
Have a lovely night!

:)Kathy

Gorgeous card!!

Blankiefinder said...

Oh, this is so cute!! Gorgeous card, and that peek a boo frog is perfect!

This kit is so much better, in my opinion, than the winter kit! Unfortunately, I did get the winter kit, and since I didn't really care for it, I did not get the spring kit! Ack!
