Empty Box Project #17- Singing Frog

This is the 11th birthday card I've made for my partner and, after 11 years, I'm still trying to come up with ideas that are relevant yet fresh!

We have a pond at the bottom of the garden and, at night, my partner loves to go down there with a torch to watch all the frog action.

I've had this Penny Black frog stamp for a few years but never used it. It was second- hand, I think, and I got it because I have another Penny Black frog stamp and I thought I'd use them together. But, obviously, I didn't, and I just pulled this one out of my empty-box-project box.

Just to recap:
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.

I'd like to enter: 
Crafting When we Can  sing me a song (happy birthday) 
Cuttin and Stampin  cute critter
Come and Get it starts with b - bunting, birthday and (speech) bubble 
Sentimental Sundays  animal love

This frog is just perfect for a masculine card - any card actually!
I really like the banner detail, so decorative, and you made the card even more personal by adding the sentiment including his name.
