Ruby's Rainbow: 1,2,3...Play Leapfrog with Me!

Good morning!  It's Wednesday so that means we have another challenge from Ruby's Rainbow...this fortnight Shaz has given us a very favorite kind of challenge!

I decided to go with my buddy Changito; I paired him with these yummy papers from Simple Stories.  Have you every used their papers?  I love them!  Don't Changito and friend look like they are having a ball enjoying the lovely spring weather?

The image is colored with pencils, and I added a bit of glitter to the butterflies.  I distressed my papers and added a handmade felt flower, some buttons and twine for embellishing.

Images: Stampendous Clear Set "Changito Spring"
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Harvest Gold, SU! Ruby Red, Simple Stories DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", PTI Pure Poppy Buttons, Twine (my stash)
Extras: Crayolas/Goo Gone, MFT Die-namics Rolled Scallop Flower, PTI Harvest Gold Felt, The Cat's Pajamas Felt (green leaf), Dimensionals

Please head on over to the Ruby's Rainbow blog to see what the rest of the DT have created with this fun sketch.  I'd love to see what YOU create too!
