Christmas Croak


Critter Crazy challenges = critters critters critters.  Check it out and join us, here:  crittercrazy

I chose a CAS style using a dark blue base card.  The inchie image is punched, coloured and edged  with gold heat embossing.  The dry embossed border is lightly dusted with gold pigment ink, and a strip of gold metallic washi tape added.

Did you know frogs are very important little critters?   I usually raise them from tadpoles and love to watch the amazing transition into frogs.  They are usually bright green with gold racing stripes and a dusting of gold; so beautiful.

wikipedia says: They [frogs} are also seen as environmental bellwethers, with declines in frog populations often viewed as early warning signs of environmental damage. Frog populations have declined significantly since the 1950s. More than one third of species are considered to be threatened with extinction and over 120 are believed to have become extinct since the 1980s.
