Kiss Me, I Love You

Happy Valentine's Day...a day late lol. Hope you all had a wonderful day and were able to spend it with the one(s) you love....whether that's your dh, boyfriend or family...or a combination there of lol. So I was having a difficult time trying to decide what I wanted to do for a card for the dh this year. Do I go with a serious card...a funny card...something in-between? And then the CDAC started their new challenges...and low and behold I found the perfect image for his card. I found it in the color challenge. The Color Challenge is being hosted by Sew Many Cards. You can find this image and so many other fantastic images here. So the Color Challenge challenged you to use this image and the colors pink, green and yellow. And this is what I came up with.

Now isn't he just the cutest little image? I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him. So then it was...o.k...what to do with him? So I found this wonderful heart border by Nana Vic's least I think it is. You see I went back to make a link to her store and it wasn't in if it's not hers I will be trying to find out who's it is. But I digress...I found this wonderful heart frame and figured it would be perfect for my frog. I sponged the inside to look like a pond with the sunset happening behind the image. I then made a lily pad for my cute little frog to sit on. I surrounded the heart with small pink pearls by Recollections.
I used Happi Scrappin' Doodles Stitched Hearts for my sentiment. You can find this cute little image and many other fabulous ones here (the stitched heart is in the freebies section). I wrote the I Love You on the hearts.
