Mr. Frog Fishing

Hey, made this card for my aunty who loves fishing and stole all mums bits to make it!!!

I stamped the image at a friend's and can't find where it came from...sorry. I coloured Mr. Frog using promarkers to match the papers I picked from mums stash.

I cut one paper as a backing for my card, one as a backing for Mr. Frog and another two to cross the card. I inked round the edge of all the papers using Brilliance ink, sky blue and VersaMagic, thatched straw and aspen mist on the contrasting colours.

I then stuck these together onto my card blank and chose some buttons to match the colour scheme. I finished it off with a happy birthday greeting and found some matching flowers for the corners. I used a yellow button brad for one and a home made flower, made from mums petal pairs punches, for the other.

My aunty loved it, hope you do too!!
