Frog Prince

I got my stamps today from Doggone Stamps! Talk about fast! Well, I quickly got to work on this Frog prince, just could not wait to color him! I highlighted his warts with Stampin Up crystal effects, and highlighted the crown and his eyes (blue!!) with glitter pens. Coloring? Well, my trusty kohinor pencils!

The paper is from a paper pack I have from SEI called Dill Blossoms. The greens and browns seemed perfect for this slimy guy. The sentiment I created on my computer and just printed it off my printer. I made up the sentiment too...I think this would be a cute card for someone who just got engaged! Too bad I do not know anyone!

Here is the inside; sorry about the crooked picture! I have more stamps to work on over the next week, so check in...better yet, go over to Doggone Stamps and checkout what they have to offer! I hear they will be putting up some new stamps soon too, so keep checking in!

There could be no truer sentiment...I hate to think of all the toads I had to kiss before I met my prince. It's surprising that I don't have any warts. Hahaha:o) Yick!

Your card is hysterical!!! I love the way you colored Mr. realistic...especially the warts. Another amazing card!!! I love it:o)
