Heart 2 Heart Challenges: The 1.2.3 Challenge

Well, I found a bit of the old mojo and created this card for the blog Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  This week the ladies at H2H issued  a 1.2.3 challenge.  So your project must break down to use one stamp, two patterned papers, and three embellishments. The sketch is from the Card Sketch Challenge on SCS actually Card Sketch #273 (issued a couple of weeks back) and I found inspiration from a wonderful little card "Birthday Froggie" created by user Cork1035 to CASE.  I did some fussy cutting on the prince frog layering a second belly and head over the bottom which isn't quite visible in this photo.

This card will be the perfect way to remind my grandbaby Caroline that I am thinking about her.  My daughter sent some new pictures last week that I'm holding in my email inbox just waiting to be printed and made into a layout!
