Grateful for Frogs

I happened upon two absolutely gorgeous frog stamps by Stampendous and I just had to buy them.  I have two friends (wait for it...that's not the end of my sentence!)...I have at least two friends who share my love of all things froggy and I needed to make a card for one of them.  Unhelpfully, both of the frogs on these individual wood mounted stamps are facing the same way on the actual stamp so I had to flip one of them around.  They look much better facing each other.
I coloured my cuties with Copics and used some papers that I happened to have to hand which are probably Prima but I can't be sure because they were loose on my desk.  My die is Papertrey Ink and I love it!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Thank you
The Ribbon Girl and Kaboodle Doodle who both want us to use Green; and
Creative Inspirations - where the challenge is Vintage/Shabby Chic and I'm hoping it's okay to choose only the vintage element as my card was predominantly for a guy and shabby chic would have been too girly.
