Froggy Gift - A Truly Scrumptious Challenge!

Hello everyone!
My first High Hopes stamp arrived in the mail last week and I'm thrilled with it - and now a little hooked on these stamps!!  He is so cute and was just a dream to colour.  This will be a handy stamp for my collection what with 3 boys and lots of birthdays to make cards for!
This card is a Joy Fold Card and am using it for the Truly Scrumptious challenge this week which is to create a card with more than one fold.  This is the first time I've done one of these and it certainly won't be the last!  It is a really great card fold.  The tutorial can be found here
I coloured with my Distress Inks (Tattered Rose, Faded Jeans, Spiced Marmalade, Frayed Burlap, Shabby Shutters) and a couple of colours from my Tombow markers.  Paper, buttons, twine and eyelets from my stash.
The sentiment for the inside of the card is a $1.50 find from Michaels.  Apologies for the poor quality pictures, it is miserable weather here today and not very good light at all.
Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you enjoyed my posting and are able to join in with this fun challenge today.  Take care!
