Daughter-in-Law Birthday Card
This card is for my daughter-in-law, who loves frogs, especially "Kermit the Frog". This isn't exactly "Kermie", but it's the best I could come up with from my stamp selection.
The the frog images come from my Simon Says acrylic frog stamp set. You can find this set at www.simonsaysstamp.com. I added some red bow ties to my frogs, just to dress them up a bit and to add a contrasting color. My daughter-in-law is a piano and guitar teacher so I added the musical notes for fun. I used several CB embossing folders to give texture to my background and a number of nesties on my sentiment and to finish off the inside. The black and white dotted background on the inside of the card was made with SU's top note die. The corner accents were done with an EK success punch and finally, I added some black and white dotted ribbon loops on the right side and glossed up the frogs' eyes with a little Diamond Glaze.
Now I'm down to just one more card for my sister and I will have all the May birthdays done. Whoohoo!
