Softpencil Thursday - Frog House

Well, Thursday's seem to come round so quickly these days - it is time for another Softpencil Thursday.  This week we have used one of Elizabeth's new images called "Frog House" (available at the Softpencil store) as the main image for our cards.
I decided to make a round card for this challenge as it fitted in with the challenge at Sketch and Stash and their sketch which I have shown below:
So, here is the card I made:
I have used Frog House as my main image and I have surrounded that image with little bugs from another of Elizabeth's sets called "Bichitos".  I just thought they were so cute I couldn't resist using them on this card.
There are six images in all in the set but I have only used four here.  The backing papers I have used are both from Papermania Capsule packs, one called Sunshine and one called Verde.
All the flowers were from my stash, most of them recently purchased from Craftee.  I'm quite into these shaped cards at the moment - so please let me know what you think.
I will also enter this card into the challenges at:
Ann's Creative Nook - Anything Goes
Bee Crafty - 3D (All my images are raised on silicone and my flowers add depth)
Craftalicious - Cute
Craftycardmakers - Photo Inspiration (I went with the colours which looked  yellow and green on my PC)
Creatalicious - 3D
Flutter by Wednesday's - layers and butterflies or angels
Sweet Stampin - Things with wings
Wild Orchid Challenge - Say it with flowers
