Just Chill, for Muse Challenge #130.....

Hello dear friends: I have a really fun card to share with you today created for the Muse Challenge . When I saw the Muse inspiration card I immediately thought of this image, here is my card.
This is a very old stamp from "Alotastamps", I tried to find this company but apparently it closed its doors a while ago.
Anyway, I just thought this frog chilling in this Martini glass fit the theme perfectly.
Now, I wanted this frog to look good so, I went hunting for a frog image to have some options as to what colors to use and I found THIS image on a Google search so I just went with it. 
To color it I use a super old tube of green acrylic paint from like a million years ago, when I took some ceramic classes, the color matches the frog in the picture real well.
I stamped the olive one more time, colored it with SU Old Olive marker, snipped it out and attached it to the panel with a glue dot, it looks like the first olive this frog tossed in the air, missed it's mouth. I used Pumpkin Pie to color the frog's hands and feet.
To make the Martini glass look more realistic, I added some Crystal Effects to it and also to the drops of Vodka this critter is spilling all over the place.
I hope you like this card, please leave me your comments, I always read them and they make me happy. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer them. Here is the Muse card that inspired this card.The Muse for this week is Tracey McNeely.
Thank you for stopping by, till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
