My "Digital Delights" "EAC" + "DTC" Summer Time Frog Challenge Card

Hello All!
Hope you are staying cool!
Today's card is made with one of my good friend Wendy's digi stamps.
She has just started a new challenge blog called Delightful Sketches and this is my entry for this week's sketch. This little guy was from her digi site Digital Delights. He is one of her Freebie Friday digis. You should check it out. Every Friday she posts a new freebie!

I took the image copied it, flipped it upside down and mirrored it so it looks like he is looking at his reflection. That is one of the cool things about digis...you can manipulate them for your own effects!
I have used a hodge podge of papers. Most of them from my scrap pile but, the cool ice cream paper is "Imaginisce- Summer Cool-Chocolate Double Dip". The card body is my fav...Bazzill Swiss Dots.
I have used lots of Stickles and Crystal Effects on this little guy so he really shines! Isn't he summery in his shinny polka -dot floaty? I found some really neat polka- dotted ribbons to match.

Here is the sketch Wendy wants us to use for this challenge.
You should join us in this week's challenge. The prize is 3 didgis of your choice from her shop and a chance to be a guest DT!

I am also entering this card in the "Everybody-Art-Challenge" and the Digital Tuesday Challenge where thier themes for this week are "Summertime". I think this card fits nicely don't you?

Here are some more pictures to check out. I never seem to know when to stop clicking that darn camera! LOL!
Remember, you can click on any image to see it enlarged for better detail.

I thank you so much for dropping by! Please be a sweetie and leave me a comment so I know you were here!

I'm back, True! I was looking through your cards again and the coloring on this one stopped me short! I thought I had commented before, but looks like I missed the publish button.

Your coloring is awesome! When I grow up I want to color just like you!
