For my card, I stamped the adorable "Frog on a Log" onto X-Press it cardstock. I colored him with Copic markers. I then cut around the log and frog with detailed scissors. I stamped the image again onto an oval piece of X-Press It. I colored the image again, including the water and the greenery. I placed the frog and log onto the oval, thus creating a little dimension. The cloudy blue sky was created with Pan Pastels. Then using Diamond Glaze, I created the shine on the water.
I framed the beige cardstock and oval with black cardstock. I did a little sponging around the beige with Adirondack Latte dye. I added some Baker's Twine and a button.
The sentiment is from DRS Designs and is called "UnFroggetable Birthday Greeting". I inked a portion of the sentiment with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker.
Inspired by today's CAS278. Thanks so much for looking!

The little scene you created is awesome! Love the frog in bright green and the way you made the reflections of what was above the water. Looks all the brighter mounted on a more neutral colour as you did. Wonderful design and great card!
