I made another card for the challenges at the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Friends group, this time using sketch #5 and the extra option to decorate the inside.

I adore this sassy girl with the frog on her head.  I colored her with Copic markers and then carefully cut her out.  In the close-up pic below, you can see the tiny white polka dots I added to her yellow dress with a white gel pen.  I used Wink of Stella on the barrettes in her hair.  The frog was also colored and cut out.  I used a colorless blender to create a mottled effect on his body.

I cut my hillside from a fun polka dot patterned paper using a Stitched Borders 1 die by Pretty Pink Posh.  I did the same thing for the inside, but cut it on a different angle.  The grass tufts were cut using the Grassy Edges dies by My Favorite Things.  I just cut it into smaller pieces.

The Soft Sky background was embossed using the Swirls folder by Tim Holtz.  I selectively stamped just one word of the sentiment from Unfrogettable by Stampin' Up on a skinny white strip of cardstock and then flagged the end using a square punch.  Inside the card, I stamped the whole sentiment just above the hillside.

I colored and cut out the frog from the top of the girl's head to use inside the card.  His expression is very mischievous, don't you think?  I really love how this card turned out.  I stayed pretty close to the sketch, just adapting a couple of things to fit my vision.  This girl has some spunk and is completely unfrogettable!  lol
