A Frog Hopping Get Well

Boy this sooo clashes with my blog!!!
I've made this card for a friend who has been in hospital a week and they still can't find what's wrong with him. They have gone from suspected meningitis to just plain baffled - not sure which option is more scary. Anyway, this is a nice bright card to cheer him up. I don't very often make cards for males (never quite know what to do) and was inspired by this image from Digi Doodle shop - and all the stuff I've seen popping around the blogs playing the Feline Playful, give a comment, get a comment game .....great fun. Thanks for the inspiration new friends. 

I used some of my favourite Meadow papers from Craft Creations, I'd got the blue and just recently treated myself to them in the green and the pink..... and also my favourite bee buttons. I coloured my ribbon, the flower and the card edges with promarkers. The Card stock I've had for a few years, it's either banana, or else straw card. I can't claim the sentiment to be my own...because I'm sure it's a pun that's in everyone's head lol. 

Yes, I know I'm supposed to leave some white, for highlights, but I just can't seem to stop myself filling the whole lot in. I have to go back and look at the tutorials again and practice don't I. A close up pic below.

This card should cheer him right up! I love it and I think you did a awesome job with the coloring but I'm like you I can't stop either and leave the white space hee hee! I love the colors and it perked me right up so I'm sure it will him! TFS!

He is adorable Linda! Perfect for a male card, and so cheery! Love all your details! The shadows on your lily pad and the yellow on the frog are great! Hope they find out what is wrong. Not knowing is awful! This will sure to cheer him up a bit!
