Fun With Frogs!

I've had yet another boy's birthday card to make, this time for a classmate of my son's, no prizes for guessing what his name is!  I've definitely got an urge to make something pretty next, I seem to have had to make loads of those dreaded male cards lately.
The image I used here is a freebie from Dearie Dolls, I thought it was such a fun image for a wee boy.  It's been coloured with my usual Promarkers.
The frog embellishment has been lurking in my stash for ages, I've no idea where I bought them, but every time I looked at the packet in the past I've always wondered why on earth I bought them!  Well, they've finally come in handy!  I've got another five left so I guess I'm going to be using this image again!
The bunting was made with my oft used Stampin' Up punch and some Papermania letter stickers.  It's been such a handy punch as I make quite a lot of kids cards and often like to add their name.
The papers are all magazine freebies from a while ago.  Its a lovely stack and just perfect for boys cards.
All it needed to finish it off was a few Papermania buttons.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
