Birthday Frog!

Friday, 12 April 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all keeping well?
I'm looking forward to tonight as my cousin's  son is taking part in a talent competition and he's in the semi-final tonight!  He is a fantastic singer and plays the guitar and he really should win the whole thing!  I'm hoping to be able to get to see him tonight and lend my support.

Time for another challenge!  This fortnight's challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog was chosen by our lovely Tammy, and she chose...

E for Emerald!

So we are looking for some green in your work - it doesn't have to be all green.

It was one of my friend's from Kraft Krazy's birthday last month.  Her forum name is Frogs and when I saw this image I knew I had to use it for her birthday card!  I also thought it would be the perfect green for this challenge!
And who knew?  I just found out today that April is National Frog Month!!  Ribbit!

Here's my card:

The image is Eleanor and Pickles Birthday Time by Lacy Sunshine.  I coloured them with the following copics:  Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair;E49,47,44,43. Pickles; G17,16,14,YG05,03,blender. Clothes; BG34,32,B06,05,04,V17,15,12,RV34,32,09,06,04,R00.  I added glossy accents to the lens of her glasses and the balloons (I think I put some on Pickles' eyes too, but I haven't got the card anymore to check and I can't see on the pictures :/ )

The paper is by Typo and the flowers were a free gift from My Crafty Heart.  The ribbon is from my stash.
The sentiment is by Wild Rose Studio and punched out with a Stampin' Up! punch.  And no card is complete without a Doohickey swirl!

The inside has been made to compliment the front.

So do yourself a favour and go and have a gander at what the rest of the DT have done at the Alphabet Challenge Blog!
