I am one of the top 3 at Unscripted!

Unscripted is one year old and they are having a treasure hunt through the DT’s blogs. It is really fun. I gave it a try but I am not sure I got them all right. The best part is you see so many wonderful cards by some of the best card makers.
I am so excited. My card was picked as one of the top three cards last week at Unscripted. It is the card that is here. I really love that blog. The DT are the nicest ladies and they leave the sweetest comments. This week is sketch #49. If you get stuck and need a great sketch to get started go check them out.
This is my card for this weeks challenge. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket called Silly Sam. I think I am addicted to CC. I have a LOT of their paper and I save it because it is so cute. I just had to break it out when I saw how much I have collected. The base card is SU Ruby Red. The image by SU called All Wrapped Up. I got this set used and I think it is so cute. I just saw that jar and the balls on the paper and thought of a marble jar. So those are marbles in my mind. Then I thought of a story we just read in school and I wanted the frog in the jar with the marbles, making it a fun boy card. So what do you think?
I stamped the frog and the jar on white card stock and used Copic markers to color them. His eye is a Hero Arts gem. Last, I added a few stitch lines with a Gelly Roll Stardust pen. The inside has some more of the paper and a marble bouncing across the card.
Other challenges this card works for:
Pile it on: Animal Riffic
Charisma Cardz Challenges: Spring
Thanks for stopping,

Congratulations on the top three-you deserve it. This card is another beauty, and the frog in the marble jar is so fun. I wonder what story you read at school. We're reading frog and road now, too funny. Thanks for joining in on another Unscripted sketch!

What an awesome card for a young boy! He will love both the frog and the marbles.

Congratulations on one year of blogging...... LeAnne sent me here and I am glad.

I have been retired and have made greeting cards for the last 12 years; I love the hobby. I will follow you, but I do not have a blog.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas with us.

Hey Linda,

I am jealous about your retirement. We had P/T conferences this week. I am bushed. I love checking out your new cards. I looked at that website about Copic Markers. I'll have to try them sometime.
