Hopping Good News

I'm very excited to be joining the very talented DRS Designs Design Team!  I am honored they asked me and it should be fun creating cards with all of their wonderful images.  Go have a peek!

Here's my first card.  It is for their weekly challenge that is hosted on the DRS Designs Blog.  This week's challenge is called the "Great Outdoors".

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.  Looks pretty cool, in real life, I must admit.

The rest of the card is quite CAS.  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.

I rounded the bottom corners with a punch.

Sure hope you can join DRS Designs for this week's challenge!
