A close up of my sentiment (I distressed the edges of the white panel)

Here's a peek at the inside part of the card where you write a personal note. The little frog charm is so adorable with a bead for his belly, but he's a little hard to see. You can enlarge the picture to get an even closer view.

Here is a view of the compete inside of the card...
