Toad Valentine Card

When I asked my 4 year-old what animal he wanted on his Valentine card, he chose the toad.  Truthfully, I expected fits his carefree personality so well!  I used SVG Attic's My Valentine set to make this.  The paper I used is from Authentique's Lively collection.
 I had a lot of fun with this card!  I embossed the green layer with a small circles embossing folder and then randomly went over some of those dots with glossy accents.  The cuts were all inked with brown chalk and I finished the card off with a twine bow and tan sequins at the bottom.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
