Hoppy Birthday, Gabriel

Friday is my sweet nephew, Gabriel's, third birthday and I needed to get a card together for him.  Jessie told me green is his favorite color, so I immediately knew I was going to use my "Unfrogettable" stamp set.  Additionally, I wanted to play along with the Paper Players and this week's sketch challenge.  You see, while color challenges are difficult for some, sketch challenges are the ones that make me stretch my creative abilities. 

I absolutely struggle with sketch challenges...give me colors or inspiration photos any day of the week and I'm good to go.  I know, I know, bass ackwards, right? :shakes head:

But, I did it!  I'm pretty pleased with the results too. :o)

This card uses (all SU! unless otherwise noted):

Stamp Set: "Unfrogettable" (retired), Daisy wheel
Inks: Black Staz-On, Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
Paper: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black
Accessories: Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon, dimensional

Well, here's hoping Gabe-Man likes it...

You have been working away over here. I love all that you've done (your layers make me smile). This card is super adorable. This inspires me to get down to business with some cards.
