Hoppy Birthday!

Today's card features a cute little birthday frog!

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and is folded at the top.  The card is made from white card stock with a navy blue card stock mat, cut at 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  The purple patterned mat is 5 1/8"x3 7/8."  The navy blue card stock strip is 2"x3 7/8."  I embossed the strip with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder and my Cuttlebug.  I then covered the swirls with midnight blue Stickles.

The white mat is cut with a Spellbinders die.  It is from the Labels 8 Nestabilities.  I stamped my sentiment, which is from My Pink Stamper, on the top right of the mat.  The image, from the Silhouette Store, is called "Birthday Frog" by PPbN Designs (#48459).  The frog is about 3 3/4" tall, without the lily pad.  I covered the lily pad and the frog's eyes with diamond glaze.

I finished the inside pretty much like the outside, sans blue embossed strip.  The navy blue mat is 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and the purple patterned mat is 5 1/8"x3 7/8."  The white mat is again cut with the Labels 8 Nestabilities die from Spellbinders.  I used a stamp from Scrappy Moms Stamps for the "hope your birthday is" part of the sentiment.  It is from the Amusing Animals set.  The "unfrog-getable" part of the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper.

I made this for the following challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations: photo inspiration (party time)

Color Throwdown: color combo

The Friday Mashup: create a project with die cuts

Stuck On U Sketches: use a die cut that has to do with a party
