Beate's Sketch Challenge #27

As soon as I saw Beate's sketch challenge this Friday I knew the stamp I wanted to used. I have a couple of the Anthony and Burt stamps from Sunday International. I love these stamps, a frog and his friend the fly. I did not ink up the fly, which I think is Anthony, not sure who is who, so if you know please enlighten me. I used my cuttlebug on the background paper and colored with my prismacolor pencils, I used my copic marker to add the dots around the image, annd added dimension to the cup of cocoa (I don't drink coffee). I then added some glitter and a piece of ribbon and some brads and the card is complete. I have to use more embellishments, I have lots of them but never use them, I am going to work on that. LOL.
