Leap year birthday

I'm a bit late showing this, but better late than never. This is a card for someone with a birthday on 29 February. The paper on which I circled the date is Webster's pages petite papers Wetern romance & all about me (free with Simply cards & Papercraft magazine). I stamped the Whispers ivy stamp on to the esign with stazon cactus green and coloured with copic G000 pale green, highlighting some of the original design as well.

I made the mistake of sticking on the wooden frog embellishment before I ran the paper through the printer to print the wording, so I had to carefully peel it off again - thankfully, it didn't damage the paper. The strip across the top is a piece of plain green card embossed with a border folder through my cuttlebug and scalloped with my rotatrim.

This is for:
