D2D: Bullfrogs and Butterflies

Hi ya friends,
Today, I get to give you a sneaky peek at the new image you'll be getting in your email if you played along last week in the progressive challenge on Faith's blog at Delightful Inspiration! Thank you everyone for playing with us :) It's a treat to see your crafty creations!
Here's my card:
I used this week's sketch at The Sweet Spot (luuuv their sketches) & this card came together speedy quick! That doesn't happen too often, so I'm grateful when it does. Especially when I'm under the weather :( sniffle, sniffle...
Card deets: Isn't this image cuuuute! It's so fun & happy :) It is called Bullfrogs & Butterflies (colored with Copics). I printed it twice & popped-up the flowers. I used the additional flowers that come with in the corner as well as the matching sentiment. The flower centers have a bit of yellow Stickles. The butterflies are Stickled out too :) All the pattern paper comes from the Sweet Nectar collection from K&Company (which is the collection that's included in my blog candy #2, if you likey!).
Here's a closer peek:
Oh, I also ran a piece of cs through the tiny bubbles embossing folder to give it the look of bumpy bullfrog skin. To finish, I let my Viva Decor pen do it's crazy thing!

Be sure to stop by the Card-Ideas blog for card inspiration by the DT, and check out all the deets to the progressive challenge at Delightful Inspiration.
