Prince Charming - Valentine's Day Card

So.... I gave my boyfriend the original Valentine's Day card I made him yesterday with a little everyday love note in it ('Awww' is what you're thinking but I'm not usually that romantic... ). Only problem was now I had to make him a new card for Valentine's Day, no worries, making cards is what I do! AND... he'll be getting 2 since I have another really cute idea to make into a card :) But for now, I will share the new one I made this morning:

A couple details to note for the crafters: I ran the baby blue background through the Spots and Dots Cuttle bug folder then inked it with a sky blue ink for for added dimension :) The background shape is from Storybook and is matted with orange card stock. The blue polkadot paper is from the Let's Party Pyramid stack of paper. The frogs are cut from my favourite cartridge Create a Critter @ 2.25 and 2 inches. The edges are distressed using green ink and I love how this effect worked on the frog bellies :D The sentiment "Prince Charming" is also from Create a Critter. I cut a few hearts from different shades of pink and red and embellished them with faux stitching with my white gel pen and also added the sentiment "to my" above "Prince Charming".  Oh... and I ran out of my pop dot dimensionals so I just folded up small strips of scrap paper 5-6 times, glued it together and made my own dimensionals to pop up the frogs :)
I think this turned out absolutely adorable... and I'm a Disney princess fanatic so I had to use the "Prince Charming" sentiment, and I went a little further with making both BF and I frogs (reference to Princess and the Frog for those who missed it... and if you missed it,  you must go out and watch the Disney movie!)

Alright peeps, that's it for today. I may be going to watch Beauty and the Beast in 3D later this evening... so I'm excited and will be busy later not making cards :)
