Think Before Speaking

This is an older artist trading card that I've always loved, because of the combination of the message with the perfect images.

The mouths were transfered onto the card. The picture of the frog came from a National Geographic article about frogs being turned into paperweights. Clamping the frogs' mouths closed was part of the process!
