I FROGot! Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Hi everyone :-D 

Today it´s my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this I FROGot! Card


I used super cute image 'OH I Forgot Froggie' from 2013 Good Luck Froggies Release. I like all froggies from the release and I think I´ll use them all in my future projects. :-D 


"Frogs are symbols of prosperity, wealth, friendship, and abundance in many cultures. In other cultures they symbolize fertility. In the Native American culture of the Southwestern United States, the frog carries a piece of wood in its mouth because the Mojave people believe frogs brought fire to humans. For the ancient Romans, the frog was believed to bring good luck to one's home. Native Aborigines of Australia believe that frogs brought the thunder and rain. Frogs are said to be effective in speeding up recovery from disease. Among the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, frogs symbolized inspiration and fertility. In ancient Egypt, Hekt, the frog goddess, protected newborn babies, hence frogs were symbols of fertility and birth. The frog is also said to attract true friends and to help find long-lasting love."


Details about my card... 

Image is paper pieced
I printed four froggies, two on a white cardstock paper and two on green cardstock paper, colored and shaded parts I needed with colored pencils, fussy cut all parts, colored edges with black permanent pen and glued all pieces together. Then I added gloss resin gel on froggie´s dots and belly, to create glossy accents.

Sentiment callout (bubble) is also paper pieced.  
I made sentiment callout using 'Stays In The Cave' free font from Kevin&Amanda and Paty Greif 'Circus Fun Bubbles' (bubble 23). I played with words and changed forgot to a FROGot. :-D 
I printed one bubble on the white cardstock  paper and one on the green cardstock paper, fussy cut them, colored edges and glued them together.

Here is a photo of all pieces I used for paper piecing. 

I love dimension on my cards! I added 3-D foams behind image and sentiment and placed them on the card. 

Card dimensions are 101 mm x 146 mm (4" x 5 3/4").
