Peace, love and frogs

When I saw this adorable image over at Lacy Sunshine I just cracked up.  The thought of a hippy frog just tickles me!  To top it off, his name is Pickles.  I have no idea why I think that's so funny but I do.  The name of the image is Groovy Pickles and you can find it in Heather's "Retiring $1 digi" section.  Yeah, I said it.  A buck.  And there are loads of really cute images there.  I have no idea how long they will remain available so you may want to go take a look.

The background paper that's kinda' tye die looking was done with a set of My Cute Stamps, Versamark ink, clear embossing powder and distress inks.  I love the resist embossing technique.  It takes a couple of steps but is really simple.  The first time I remember seeing it was in this video.  Each time you do it, you get a different result and I enjoy the surprise.

I've used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for this card.  Here's the sketch:

And here's the card:

I twisted the image just a bit....a hippy frog should be twisted.  Right?  The sentiment is mine.  I printed it using Word and I think that's pretty funny too.  Yes, I am a dork.  I neither deny nor resist it.  In fact, I embrace it.  The tag the sentiment is on was made using a Recollections tag punch.  The little "forever" charm is from the Michaels Dollar Bin.  The seam binding was white and I dyed it using 
Spiced Marmalade distress ink and a little water.
(Note to self: wear plastic gloves next time.  Dork.)

In addition to Tuesday Morning Sketches, you can find this card at the following challenges:
