Hoppy Valentimes

I had a lot of fun making this Valentine.  I added a few extra elements that took additional time, but I like how it turned out.  The card backing is a 5.5"x 5.5" khaki folded card from Paper Source.  I LOOOOOVE Paper Source.  I made all of my wedding invites and thank yous from their paper.  Such high quality and beautiful colors.  I made the clock out of Shrinky Dinks shrinkable plastic.  It makes me giggle to look at this fella because he reminds me of Flava Flav.    The frog was cut from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge.  I embossed the frog with a Darice embossing folder called "Dot".  I added Glossy Accents to the hearts inside the butterfly's wings and added 2 different Washi tapes to the top and bottom of the card.
I stamped the sentiment using ColorBox's Petal Point Classic Pigment Inkpad and alphabet stamps from My Sentiments Exactly.  I quite enjoy the double pun :)
Cheers from the frigid North!  It's snowing like crazy here in MN.
