Hoppy Birthday

I created this card for a good friend who adores frogs.  The frog is from the Nature Hike clip art set from Lettering Delights.  This clip art set is one of many freebies available from Lettering Delights right now.  I created the two layers in Photoshop Elements and then used my Cricut Sure Cuts A Lot software to cut it out.  The only thing I would do differently if I were to make this card again is that I would use the Cricut for the mouth instead of drawing it.  I think I would cut it out of the light green layer and then put some black paper behind it.  It is a bit hard to see in the picture, but the light green paper has been embossed with the "Leather" Fiskars texture plate using my Big Shot.

Thanks for looking,
