Together Til We Coak!

Hello!  I bet you are wondering where I have been!  Well, we had family here over the weekend, and yesterday I met a friend for lunch.  And tomorrow, my hubby & I are off for a little overnight trip for our 4th anniversary.  So, all that adds up to is not much time spent in my "shack" to make cards for you!  I finished the most important one and that is my hubby's anniversary card!  I know you saw the title ... let's get to it... I love how it came out!  Enjoy!

A couple of things ... First, the circles with the repeated sentiment "together til we croak" was printed on the computer. Also, I want to comment about how my ribbon matches the frog colors but the pattern paper is a different green.  I normally would make sure the paper I was using totally matched how I colored my frog and then the embellishment would match too.  This is definitely a different look, but I think I like it.  Maybe, it works because the background paper is very busy so with the colors being different, it creates a contrast to the background.  What do you think?  Do you like it?  I also see now, I left off the pearl/ rhinestone accent in the corners.  Will probably add before giving it.  I did add a few extra details to my frog like glittered heart lips, popped-up head and the google eyes!  Too cute, huh?
