Anyhoo...here's a little more about the Winking Frogs...
I wanted this gift box to be something extra special....lots of sparkle, so it looked like something magical out of a fairy tale. I actually envisioned this as a fun engagement ring presentation. Imagine receiving your ring from your prince in this fairy tale container! LOL Those two wide eyed frogs in love sitting under their own toadstool being "croaked" to by the fiddle'n frog in the front yard of their mushroom manor! LOL
Here's a closer look...
...and of course one has to include water lilies and lily pads to this swamp style creation...all with a visiting dragon fly...
...and as these close up photos show you, I was completely serious about having this gift box sparkle...
I do hope you've enjoyed my share today!
I hope you've been completely inspired to create a magical fairy tale creation yourself with the new Winking Frog Collection! Wouldn't it be completely adorable paired up with the owls of Sugar Hollow? LOL
The rest of the design team has come up with some magical creations of their own! So be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations blog to continue your hunt for the Winking Frogs!
Until next time...
