Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper August 2018 challenge

This is my card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper August 2018 challenge.If you make anything that includes some patterned paper you can link your entries and you might be the randomly chosen winner of lovely Love to Craft Let's celebrate! papers and some extras as well. Please click on the challenge link to find out more and join in the fun.

I used five different papers from the pack for the card, cutting up pieces from three of them. The large star is from the pack of printed tags, topped with the sentiment and the bow. The little frogs with one holding a balloon are part of a Penny Black stickeroo - they seemed to go so well with the papers and other elements.
