MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge Using Feeling Froggy

Today's card is for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  A new challenge is posted every Wednesday at the MFT forum at the Splitcoaststampers site.  Normally, I always make an A2 card, but today I went  with a 5" square card.  I just think the layout looked better square.   I really liked working with this sketch, since I always seem to struggle picking out pattern papers.  For this card it wasn't deciding on what patterns to use, but instead how to handle the border in the center of the card.  After going back and forth I went in a completely different direction.  Below is the sketch for this week.

For my card I used the PI Feeling  Froggy stamp set.  I thought about paper piecing her bib overalls, but opted to just color the whole image with my copics.  I wanted my bow to make a  statement, so instead of making a single bow I created several loops and topped it off with an epoxy circle shape.  I had this tool for some time and finally had a use for it.  I just used a piece of the pattern paper under the epoxy, so it went with the rest of my card.
