Birthday Ballerina Frog

I had so much fun this morning creating this card that I can hardly stand it!  House of Cards
has a challenge this month where you are to use a button, or more if you like, and the first
2 weeks of the month are for the Fun/Cute or Shabby/ Vintage style.  As a member of the
Classic & Elegant team there I don't normally do Fun/Cute but thought I would give it a try.

I've incorporated a few other challenges as well.  The sketch is from the Seize the Sketch
challenge and the color combo comes from the Color Throwdown challenge. And since I
added a birthday sentiment it will work for the Seize the Birthday challenge as well.

I found this cute little ballerina frog digital stamp at and it is a freebie!
Now, digital stamping is something else I'm new at.  I just need lots of practice coloring.
She was colored with some spectrum noir markers and smooch ink. I did some dry
embossing and die cut the circles. I've had those little flower buttons for about a year left
from a button necklace project.  Thanks for taking a look!
