Seeking Frog...

This image was provided

613 Ave C's challenge for this week is ATG/or optional twist to use a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt to celebrate her October 13th birthday!  
Now, very quickly I must say - the sentiment on my card is NOT from Eleanor - I am going the Anything Goes route with my project!  Though, knowing her sense of humor, I lay odds she might have said this one if the opportunity presented itself!  Do check out what the DT gals are doing - sooo creative!  And then come play with us!


  • Kitty Bee Designs sponsored this challenge and provided me with "Froggie" to use.
  • Sentiment was a "Freebie", but unfortunately I don't have the source.
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP used for fishtail banners & insides are all scraps from other projects.
  • Base CS is from stash.

  • Two corners of the base CS have been rounded with the 1/2 inch 'Corner Chomper'.
  • Used a Cuttlebug E-Folder of water rings and Koi in a pond for the front of the card.
  • The fishtail banners were glued to a piece of CS and then handstitched with cream colored waxed linen.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
