Paper Smooches September Challenge - Animals

Here is Paper Smooches September challenge - animals, below is the challenge photos:



And here is the card I made for this challenge:


I used Bear Frog card die to create this cute frog and shaded it with Distress ink. I stamped the bee from Courteous Cuties set and colored it with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush, then cut it out. I attached the bee with foam tape on top of the card. Finish the card by heat embossing "bee well soon". Below is a closer look of the card:


I made this card for the donation to a hospital in Taiwan and the card will be sent from nurses or social workers to the children stayed in this hospital. Since this card is made for a boy, so I decided to make another card for a girl. 


I used the same Bear Frog card die but this time I made a panda. The bee was from Garden Greetings set. Love both of the cards, very cute! Hope these cards will bring smiles to the children who receive them. Below is another look of this card:
