Sweet Stop Sketch #195 for Play Date Cafe #166

Black, white and a splash of green are the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge #166 and I found a very interesting sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches #195 to combine with this challenge.   I used Close to My Heart Topiary CS as my green.  The frog is from a retired CTMH set called "Frogs".  He was stamped in Topiary ink and then he received a coating of my favorite embellishment, Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel, all over his body except for the 3 brown spots which were Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel.  He also has tiny wiggle eyes which were applied with Mini-Glue Dots.  The patterned black and white papers are from CTMH Black Background & Texture Paper (retired).  The leaves extending from the bottom left and top right of the circle were cut with the Artiste cartridge (pg. 32 accent 3 shift cut at 1") from holographic green paper (source unknown).  The frog was raised up from the black circle with 3D Foam Tape.  I like how the frog and the leaves sparkle in the light.

Here is the sketch from the Sweet Stop :
