Hoppy Birthday!

Yes, I know it is Thanksgiving tomorrow....followed shortly by Christmas, but people are still celebrating their birthdays right? ;) I created this card for the SRM blog using this adorable set by Jane's Doodles called, Garden Friends. I stamped the frogs in a light brown ink by Tim Holtz and water colored them using my Zig Clean Brush markers.

The eyes were given a generous coating of glossy accents. Once that was dry I added a drop of black puffy paint. I cut the image using a Spellbinder's rectangular scalloped die. While the die was still in place I sponged Tim Holtz ink in shades of green, yellow, and blue.  I stamped the sentiment in black and added a few more dots with the black puffy paint.

For a finishing touch I added pretty silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply Store. I love leaving the ribbon long and's kind of my "thing" right now! ;) SRM Stickers Blog - Hoppy Birthday! by Michele - #card #janesdoodles #gardenfriends #watercolor #birthday

Thanks so much for stopping! I am off to the kitchen to start my Thanksgiving preparations! Have a lovely day!

Wonderful! Those frogs are just cute! And I have to say you stepped out of your comfort zone to make this cutie -- no lace, sparkles,frilly layers or jingle bells! Awesome...
