Happy Birthday Frog - Gotta Love Dustin Pike

I needed a birthday card for my friend Becky who's crazy for frogs and knew I couldn't go wrong with a Dustin Pike image. I used my Copics to color this sweet little guy (don't you just love that face!) and added the sentiment using a stamp from Papertrey Ink. I finished the edge of the designer papers with a Martha Stewart punch, added a chocolate gingham ribbon and topped it all off with a little butterfly button. I had no idea where I was headed with this when I started, but I really like how it turned out ... simple, but cute ... I think Becky will like it too!!

Very nice Jo, love the colours, I think gingham always add something special to a card.

Have a good weekend.

This is just so adorable! I love your punched edges--can't go wrong with a punched edge! And that ribbon with the butterfly is totally the finishing touch. Really nice job and I bet she LOVED it!
