A Birthday Card

So, today's card is pretty exciting because I randomly came across a new to me coloring/blending technique.  I am sure it is not new and many out there know about it.  However, it makes me so happy because it uses one of my still to this day absolute favorite things - Crayola Crayons!!!

My best friend's children both have birthdays coming up, so this card is going to her son.  I am "hopping" he likes it.  
All the paper is from the scrap files once again.  I ran the card front through the Cuddlebug.  The word stamp is actually from SU Unfrogetable Set, and the frog was a freebie digistamp I got some where along the way.  For the life of me, I can't remember where, though.  I pop dotted him to give some height to his hop.  The white flower is actually a dollar store stemmed flower that I bought to mess around with.  I took the stems off and separated the layers.  I have been rather surprised with how well they have been working out.  To top it off, I added a Prima on top, and Stickles to the brad because Stickles always make it better. 

I have another birthday card for you tomorrow and more information about what I am learning about the crayon coloring/blending technique.  
Can't wait!!
