Happy Froggy Birthday

This card was really tricky for me. I challenged myself in several ways (some on purpose.) The layout is a Kerry Urbatch sketch on Barb's blog. That wasn't the hard part. I realized a couple months ago that I like the color purple but I don't like crafting with it. Like, it hurts my brain. But, I have this pretty shimmery paper that was cuttlebug embossed. It was a RAK from Jan and I've been wanting to use it for a long time. Okay, here's where it got tricky. I got this cute frog image a month or so ago. I started coloring him last night and realized (too late) that he is on watercolor paper. Note to self, Prismacolor pencils don't work well on watercolor paper. Also, my usual adhesive does not work with watercolor paper. But, I do have one watercolor pencil and it's purple. So, I watercolored around froggy in purple. Shwoow. Cardmaking shouldn't be this painful.
