Truly Scrmptious - Frog Prince

I made this card for my soon to be 80 year old FIL.......I hope he likes it and it's not too trendy as he is a bit of an old fashioned boy. I do find making mens cards difficult & especially older ones.
I have followed the latest sketch on The Truly Scrumtious Challenge. I must admit I can't follow a sketch unless it talks to me and this one did......liked it as soon as I saw it!
I have used my Frog Prince stamp which is available from Pink Gem Designs and he has been coloured with Koh-i-noor pencils and blended with Sansador with glamour dust added to the wings of the dragonfly and the crown
The papers are Basic Grey (proper man papers these!)

This is gorgeous Janet. I struggle so much with mens cards (I even gave in and bought one last week - the shame!) but this is perfect, I'm sure your FIL will love it. Thanks for joining in our TS challenge.
