Thoughtful Frog

I love this little frog from the SU set A Flower for All Seasons. I finally mounted this set last night and inked it up for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch # 24.

Nothing too complicated here...the patterned paper is from the same DCWV Latte Mat Stackpaper I used for the teacher cards paired with SU certainly celery and orchid opulence and Gina K Pure Luxury heavy base weight- chocolate kiss.

I don't think I've ever used orchid opulence, but what a great colour and it goes so well with Papertrey's satin ribbon! Because I ran the ribbon straight across the card instead of following the sketch exactly, I moved the sentiment strip (from the SU Trendy Trees set, which I also finally mounted last night) up a little. The froggy image is stamped in Adirondack espresso and coloured with copics.

Thanks for looking!

Aw, I love this little frog! And orchid oppulence? Wow, I don't think I've used that color in about 4 years, ha! You did a fantastic job with it - This is a very sweet card.
