I got the Whipper Snapper image in an image trade (tanks Linda!)...I think I "toadally" have to buy him!! He is just way to ca-ute!
I started out with a semi-masculine pp, then prismacolored the image to match the pp. I also prismacolored around his body to create more of a shadow. He kinda looks like he might need a bath, but that's ok...a little toadjam never hurt anyone!!
I added some ribbon, then embossed a piece of pewter hardware with black for the frame around the sentiment. Would you believe I had NO WHITE BRADS!?!?!?!?! SO I thought, thats ok....I will emboss them too!!! LOL! Ya RIGHT! I have 65 bottles of EB Powder and NO WHITE!!! It's simply a crime! So....I rolled the silver brads onto my white craft ink, then embossed them with clear to seal the ink, and make them shine like the frame. *grin* Lastly I added some photo corners, and a little doodling! Done...I hope it made his day!

This turned out to be a really great card. I love the image too and your coloring looks great. When I read "toadjam" I totally laughed out loud! Great problem solving with the whole EB powder obstacle!
