This is my this weeks Cuttlebug Spot Design Team card and my other card for my dear friend Lisa... she needed a card for another friend at work who loves Crosses... and this worked wonderfully well with my assignment for the week... We had to ink an embossing folder... so I used dark pink in on light pink paper and the Victoria embossing folder...

I said to Melia at work how can I make a frog card...we she said Lilly Pad... and I went inside my head again... well duh... so I looked at pictures and this is what I ended up with...
