Hoppy Birthday

Here is a pretty simple birthday card I did last night. The image was colored with Prisma pencils and Gamsol. I also masked the ice cream cone that the frog was holding so he could hold the balloons that I cut from cuttlebug balloon die cut. I used nestibilities for the circle and the tag and added a few brads to the tag. Word are computer generated.TFL
