Farewell my Prince....

My post for today ends another chapter as this is my last post with the MyGrafico Challenges Team. I have enjoyed my time working with these girls and am sad to be leaving but other opportunities have come along and I need to change things up from time to time. So I hope you will play along with my last sketch as Team leader - it's a simple one and the set we are working with is "fairy" cute:














And here's our sketch and my card:











































I love frogs so I couldn't resist using this princely guy for this week's challenge. I changed the sketch a teeny bit and left off the band across the middle (seen in blue on the sketch). Truthfully, I simply forgot it! But I think there is enough going on with this card that it really wasn't needed.

Instead of adding a circular image and mat to the front of the card, I cut a circle out of the card front to create a window and placed my frog on the inside. To create the frame around the window, I placed 2 Nestabilities dies together - the larger scalloped circle and a little smaller plain circle and cut the piece with both dies in place at the same time.

My frog was colored with Copics and adorned with bling from Prima. All paper is from the new Green at Heart line by Basic Grey. Here's a picture of the inside of the card too:













Not sure what my sentiment will be on it yet so I have left it blank for now. If you look at the photo closer, you will see the frog's eyes are added on foam tape for a little more dimension.

If you would like to play along, just follow the sketch and be sure to use an image from MyGrafico (they have a freebie section so be sure to check it out!) Then hook up at the challenge blog and you might win this adorable digi set!

My thanks again to the MyGrafico Challenge team - it has been a really fun experience! Keep up the great artwork!

SO CUTE! I am a little obsessed w/ frogs myself (not real ones...I'm freakishly afraid of them), but don't often use them. I think I just decided I'm using the frog from Happy Endings in one of our upcoming challenges! I love your color choice...it's very "royal."
