Double Trouble - Toad-ally Awesome

I was playing with alcohol inks a few days go and created a green and gold background - perfect for the current Double Trouble challenge! I have completed all three parts... (see below)

I stamped three of the toads (or frogs, as they look more like frogs to me...) and coloured them in varying shades of green. A stitched rectangle border was added along the outside and each piece was bordered in white, including the gold foil piece. The sentiment strip had a piece of twine added around it and it was tied in a bow on one side. A few decorative gems were added to stay with the green and gold theme. 

Although I am a member of the Heart 2 Heart design team, I am adding my card as a DT member but within the link up.
