Hoppy Birthday!

Today, I'm sharing this Fun Loving Frog "Hoppy" Birthday card! You can never have enough birthday cards on hand and this one is perfect for a man or a woman!

This singing Frog is just the cutest, isn't he? Both images are by DRS Designs and the sentiment is one of their new releases. I stamped the sentiment in green to match how I colored the frog. It was just the right touch!

I used the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug embossing folder to dress up the smooth white cardstock a bit. I was going on the fact that it resembled the lumpy, bumpy skin frogs have rather then bubbles, but hey, maybe he's singing in a bubble filled room! This gives quite the mental picture, doesn't it!?!?

Overall, this card is pretty simple, yet, it has just the right texture complete with ribbon, brads, and from use of the Cuttlebug.

Stamps: DRS Designs-Hoppy Birthday Sentiment, Singing Frog
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Lime Pastel and SU! Glorious Green
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by Bazzill and American Crafts
Accessories: Ribbon-Paper Trends by The Paper Studio, Cuttlebug and Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder, Bic Markers, Brads by O'Scrap, SU! Slot Punch
Finished Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

I've yet to get a chance to work on my Suspension Card for tomorrow's Fun Filled Friday Challenge. It's on my agenda to complete today. I have a plan laid out in my sketchbook, and I'm hoping to use new stamps that will be available from DRS Designs on Friday...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have it ready to share with you tomorrow!

Wish me luck!

Thanks for visiting today, have a great day!
