A Froggy Chorus!

Hi everyone!

This is a quick posting just to show you a very speedily put together birthday card for my friend's husband's birthday! Male cards are always so challenging so I thought this image would work for him. I coloured with my copics and added embossed panels behind the image. Two fabric brads in each corner finish the card. No adding flowers or pearls on this card, but he really liked the card when he received it! So I'd say it was a hit!!

That's all folks - hopefully I'll get a chance to get into my craft room this evening and play around a bit and do a few challenges. Hope you're all enjoying a wonderful Monday - we've had a very pleasant Holiday Monday here in Ontario with sunshine and lots of swimming!!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment - they're always so much appreciated!

Hugs,

Danielle x

Danielle it's true male cards are hard to do for me as well! You can't do all the cute stuff to them!
But..this one is quite cute. I really like the frogs! I like how you embossed the two square with the Happy Birthday! Great job!
Hopefully this week the sun will shine a little for us in Ontario!

I'm with you --- male cards are so hard -- no cute ribbon or flowers or....well, you know, everything!

This one is awesome though. Fab colouring as usual.

Great card Danielle. The image is adorable and beautifully coloured. I agree, male cards are so difficult, I am even thinking of resorting buying a card for my brother's birthday this month!
