(2011 Card #40) Mouse Riding a Frog

OOOPppsss My Bad, I just found another card that was made 2 weeks earlier, I'll submit it actually on todays date.    I am resubmitting this on August 28, 2011 because Meljen's Designs Challenge this week is
Challenge #73 - BLAST FROM THE PAST!!
Show us the very first card you ever made using a Meljen's Designs image!
Spring is in the air:  I hear frogs everytime the sun comes out these days!
Printed Meljens Designs freebie from PaperCraftPlanet Group-MeljensDesigns-forum-500-member-freebie
I painted frog & mouse with LuminArte Powdered Pigments that I mixed with Gum Arabic.  Cut image out with Spellbinders Blossoms Die, then sponged Tempting turquoise ink from Stampin Up.  Added green sequins to the image.  Hello is also from Meljens Designs. cut out with Ribbon Tag Trio Two by Spellbinders. Card Base is from DCWV Shimmers Stack. Other papers are from my stash.  Added Buttons tied with gold thread.  Embossed light green paper with Sizzix Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Ribbon from Michaels was criss crossed on back side of the tag to form the angle on card.
