Happy Birthday 2 U

Today I've made a mini card  -  only 10 x 10 cm.
I had been wanting to use one of those Penny Black frogs since I have them... so here's my card with one of them.
As my dad will be 50 right after Father's Day this year, I decided to make a combined card for both occasions... 



I decided to add some fake stitching to the card as I had the feeling that something was missing... That's how the card looks like now.



Stamp: "Frog" from Penny Black Transparent Set Toadily, "Lily" from Betty's Creations and a selfmade "waves" stamp
Pigment Ink Pad in black, white and green
Colours: Water Colour Pencils from Faber Castell
Sketch: Hanna and Friends
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabiliies
Square diamonds, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.

Stempel:  "Frog" von Penny Black Transparent Set Toadily, "Seerose" von Betty's Creations und ein selbstgemachter Wellenstempel aus Moosgummi
Pigment Ink Pad in schwarz, weiß und grün
Farben: Aquarell-Buntstifte von Faber Castell
Sketch: Hanna and Friends
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Quadratische Diamanten, einfaches Tonpapier und Tonkarton aus meinem Bestand.
