Karen Burniston's August Designer Challenge Hoppy The Frog Accordion Card

 Karen Burniston's August challenge for her Design Team is to use any of her character dies... Hoppy, Poppy or Chilly, from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I chose to use Hoppy on a Fancy Label Accordion card base.

 I made patterned paper frames for the card panels, using the Fancy Frame Edges die set. All the papers are from a lovely 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye, called 'Oxford Lane'.

  I layered Hoppy with small square adhesive foam pads, and hand cut some 'jump lines' for him.
I also added little bows in each of the corners, using a die from Karen's 'Props 1' die set, and some adhesive pearls.

On the other panel, I cut a label (another die from the Accordion Fancy Label set) and stamped 'hello' with VersaMark ink, then heated some white embossing powder on it. The stamp is from Pink Paislee's 'Hello Sunshine' collection.
I also added a couple of little flies from the Hoppy the Frog die set.

Finally, on the card front I added a checked paper frame, using the Accordion Fancy Frame die to cut it, and snipping away the extra bits.
