The Pieces of Heart challenge this month was to create a card using at least 10 circles with 2 different sizes. I have named this frog after our mascot, Don Schell who gave us this challenge. I thought it to be quite a challenge until I happened upon this adorable punched owl by Tammy Howel. It was almost as if he came to life as I assembled his parts. There are way more than 10 circles and 2 different sizes so I met the challenge without a contest.
Best thing about this card? With the exception from the Whisper White card base, all of the paper came from my scrap box.
For the Frog you will need:
1 – 1 3/4" circle Always Artichoke
1 – 1 3/8" circle Old Olive
2 – 3/4" circles Always Artichoke
2 – 1/2" circles Whisper White
2 – 1/4" circles Basic Black

For smile – cut 3/4" Basic Black and then cut 1/2" circle form that in a smile shape.
Sponge green pieces with Always Artichoke. For eyes the Always Artichoke circles are glued behind the oval and the white and black in front of the oval.
