A New Pad

Our next door neigbours are moving house, we'll really miss them and I'm sure we'll stay in touch.  This is the card I made them to put up in their brand new house, which isn't very far away.
I've used Toadstool House from Pink Gem, which I've coloured with Promarkers, adding tiny googly eyes to the frog, I just couldn't resist, I do love a googly eye or two!  The papers are a mixed bag of Craftwork Cards, Papermania Capsule Collection Spots and Stripes, and American Crafts Dots and Stripes.  I made the flowers with Woodware punches, adding Card Candi for centres, and finished with some gingham ribbon, a charm, and white pearls.
