My First GSG Challenge!!! Woo Hoo!!

Hi there!!! I was recently invited to join the Great Swaps Girls (Can you say Woo Hoo!!!!), and I made this card for GSG09, which was to use at least one set from the new SU Retiring List that came out!!! I chose to use Unfrogettable (No...I will NOT give this one up...you cannot make me!!!) and Print Pattern. Maren also challenged us to use the retiring In Colors, and I managed to incorporate all six retiring In Colors in either ink/paper or both.

I really did not intend to make a scene card...that's kinda not my thing, but this card had a mind of its own!!!

All the images were watercolored with my Aquapainter and SU inks. The frog was cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

Anyone can participate in the GSG Challenges...so stop by the GSG Blog and play along!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
