Happy Birthday with High Hopes!

Hi and happy Saturday! Hope you are having a splendid weekend!
I am working on using some of my unused stamps these days. I buy so many that I love and then they sit unused-virgin rubbbah! Also trying to play in some challenges so I used the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is a GREAT sketch! It'll work for rectangle or square cards. Since mine is for a boy I kept it pretty close to the sketch. I'm also posting it for the High Hopes challenge which is to use fall colors. I think orange, purple and green count as fall colors.
I used copics to color my image and after that this simple card came together pretty quickly. Still have to do the inside though.
I used YG markers for the frog, RV for his shirt and the warm greys for his pants. If you would like to know more specifically, just let me know and I'll post them.
Thanks so much for coming by today!
Enjoy your day!
