Carl's New Pad

Hi everyone!
How's your weekend going? Good I hope!
As you may know, I am currently a Guest Scribbler over at
Here's my latest card for them!

I made a New Home card for a guy who's just moved in to his first flat!
The cool image I have used is #321 Carl's Pad
(gotta love a cute frog in a pond lol )
The sentiment is my own!
My card base is the usual 6"x6".
I used a mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers to colour up the image.
The image & sentiment were die cut using spellbinders dies,
then inked with some liquid chalk ink.
The patterened paper is from a book of papers I picked up at Lidl.
The fish tail was created using a square punch on an angle!
I was going to add a couple of buttons but the little bit of trim appeared
 from nowhere & was the right size, so I stuck it on instead.
Thi card is flat which means it can easily be posted.
