Denami Theme Challenge 7...

I've had this card in my head ever since the Water Lily was released from Denami Design.  Their Theme Challenge #7 is Animals.  Tho my card is mostly Water Lillies there is a lil' Froggy in there=)  I have to share really quick that this is my very first card that I've sewn on!  My sweet friend Kat came over on Friday for a few hours to teach me how to sew (I still need lots of practice tho!).  Thank-you so much Kat!!!  Ok now back to the card details...
I took a piece of Neenah cardstock and sewed a rectangle first since I am just a beginner and can barely sew a straight line=)  I sponged Adirondack Aqua from the edges to almost center, then Distress Ink in Faded Jeans around the edges.  SU oval punches, notching out a small triangle in Old Olive cardstock, sponging Old Olive ink around the edges.  I stamped the Water Lily several times on Neenah Cardstock, coloring with my Copics.  For the middle Water Lily I colored and cut several layers, glueing them on for dimension, them popped it up on foam squares.  For the Froggy I used Neenah, colored with Copics, cut out, Crystal Lacquered the whole lil' guy and popped him on a foam square too.  I didn't have matching ribbon so I colored white grossgrain ribbon with an Old Olive Marker.  I mounted my main image panel on Iridescent Pearl then used foam squares to mount it to Magenta Cardstock.  I used Card Patterns 132 for my layout but unfortunately I started my card, put it down, picked it up, put it down, etc. and didn't finish on time to enter it before the deadline=(
I hope you have a great day!
