Froggy Christmas

Red and green are traditional Christmas colors, but apart from my choice of colors I don't feel that there's anything traditional about this Christmas card! That might be the reason as to why I feel this card has more of a male feel to it. I kept the design clean, only adding red pearls and a doodled black line.

The image, from From The Heart Digital Stamps, is so fun to color with Promarkers, and I chose to fussy cut it. The green DPs with spots aren't Christmas DPs. I usually feel that green is a difficult color for me to work with, but the frog image kind of inspired me to give it a go, so I had to choose from my very small collection of green papers. I used a stamp that came free with a magazine to make the sentiment.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Christmas Challenges With Sketches - Sketch
2) Passion For Promarkers Challenge - #218 Lots of Legs
3) Try It On Tuesday - Going Dotty
4) Ooh La La Creations - F is for... (Frog)
5) Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - # Circles
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Very cute! And you're right, it doesn't scream Christmas at all. If it wasn't for the Santa hat (and the sentiment!) it could be a card for any occasion. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.

Isn't he just the cutest little froggy. He's adorable and he certainly looks very festive all dressed up in Santa's hat. By the way...the green works!
