Festive Frogs

Well, that's Christmas card number seven made for this year!
I picked up this Pepper and Friends stamp set for a pound at the SECC in October, I do love a bargain!  As it's quite a small, detailed image all I can say is thank heavens for Promarker fine nibs!  I'd have struggled to colour it without them.  After colouring, I highlighted the eyes with Anita's 3D Gloss and the hats with diamond Stickles.  The edges of the topper and scalloped card blank were coloured with Distress Ink in Old Paper.
The patterned papers are all Papermania from the Home for Christmas range which came in a goody bag last year along with the poinsettia and leaves.
The border punch is by EK success.
I finished the card with some ribbon and gems.  I had hoped that by not adding a bow that it would be thin enough to go standard letter post but I have a feeling that the gem brad might be just a smidgen too chunky and it'll have to go as a large letter.
