Have a birthday coming up for my son so I made this card for him. Look Jim, no ribbon. My husband and my son always challenge me to think out of the box and stay away from ribbon. Twine doesn't count does it? I found these really neat brads from Recollections. I love the way they work with the "Diamond Plate" Cuddlebug embossing folder. The stamp is one I borrowed from a friend at a recent stamp & share we had so I don't know the manufacturer. The tab punch is from Stampin Up. The Happy Birthday was from Artful Legacy and all the paper was Stampin Up: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Kraft and Very Vanilla. I ran the Kraft through the crimper for some more lines and texture to the layers Colored with Copic and the background spots was made with a another stamp from Artful Legacy.
I would say I chose this frog because he represents my son waiting to find his Princess to kiss him, but then he would kill me so I won't say that. (Shhhhh) I really just thought the frog was so cute and wanted an excuse to make him into a card.
