First Card For Fussy and Fancy Friday Design Team!

Here is my first card for the design team at Fussy and Fancy Fridays. We got to use this sketch from Mindy. She makes the best cards ever!! You should go check her out.
Anyway, I am a little disappointed in how the picture of my card turned out. It looks so much cuter in real life.
We all got to choose a digi image from digi doodles. Anyone that knows me knows how I have hated frogs in the past. Only because we have so many right outside our bedroom window and from the 1st part of March until about the end of May, they are so loud they keep us awake at night. Because of this I seemed t be getting more and more frog images. I guess subconsciously maybe I really like them. Who knows. But I thought this image was adorable. Perfect for Valentines Day or anniversaries.
I printed out the image and colored it with copics. Then cut it out and layered it with nestibilities. I put these little green "candy" thingys I got about a year ago from Taylor's store. They are so cute. I think she has them in several colors.
The papers I used for this card are again from the Quite Contrary collection from My Minds Eye. There are quite a few different papers in this collection. I think it is so pretty and springy and most of their papers have a cool feel to them like wallpaper. I get them alot at Craft Warehouse but our local scrapbook store carries them too. The ribbon I used is a discontinued ribbon from Stampin Up in my favorite color, Kiwi Kiss.
Also for the heart at the bottom, I used a Martha Stewart heart punch and to keep it dimensional I filled the back of it with glue from my hot glue gun and then stuck it on the card.
I hope you all get a chance to check us out at Fussy and Fancy Fridays. Each challenge runs for two weeks,
so their is lots of time to join in!
Happy Stamping!

  2. Hiya Tracey. Great take on the sketch and I love your image - gorgeous colourwork!! I couldn't image having loadsa frogs right outside my house! Maybe you have developed a soft spot for them after all if you seem to be gathering up froggie images lol. Love your card.

    I'm so looking forward to working with you at Fancy and Fancy over the next few months.
