Have the Hoppy-Est Birthday!

I made this card for my niece's 3rd birthday, thought it was perfect for her spunky personality! 

Instead of an envelope, I thought I would do something different and attach ribbon to the back and tie it to keep it closed, then she can untie it to read the inside! So it serves as his collar as well as an open/close on the card! :)



I used cardstock from my scrap pile and the ribbon I found in my stash - its hard to see in the picture but it has black, pink and green stripes, so it matched perfectly! 

The frog is from Create A Critter cricut cart, the sentiment stamp is from My Pink Stamper 'Buggy Punnies' and the inside sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I used my gypsy to weld two frogs together to form the card base then I cut another one in green to make the card front and another one in pink to make the inside pretty!

I'm entering this into the following challenges...
Bitten By The Bug 2 - Create A Critter frog challenge
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #29: Ribbon birthday cards
You Had Me At Craft - Week #17: Made It Myself Mondays
