A Love You Lots Botanical Builders and May 2016 Paper Pumpkin Birthday Card

Today I thought I would play with the frog image from the "Love You Lots" Hostess set.  I thought I would make it into a children's birthday card.  The "Love You Lots" set didn't have happy birthday words so I took them from the May 2016 Paper Pumpkin set.  I have not put my Paper Pumpkin kit together yet.  I may do that tomorrow night.  I have a very long list of things I need to get done and that one isn't high on my list.  

Okay, let's talk about this card.  It was SUPER easy to make. I used the new Emerald Envy card stock and ink pad.  I stamped the frog and colored it in using the Emerald Envy ink pad and a Blender Pen.  I used Peekaboo Peach and a Blender Pen for the eyes.  I put the words together on an acrylic block and stamped them both at the same time.  The Paper Pumpkin kit has lots of words with it and you can mix and match.  I like it that I can put the Happy Birthday on one line if I want. And I probably will on a card some other time.  
The base of my card is a folded half sheet of Emerald Envy.  I used a quarter piece of the card stock for the layer behind the frog layer and for the leaf.  I stamped the veins of the leaf using Emerald Envy and then used the Framelit to cut it out.  I thought it would pass for a lily pad.  It works if you cross your eyes and quickly look away!!! LOL  It's a kids card. I really don't think a little kid is going to call me out for a faux pas on the lily pad!!! LOL

I set the frog layer in place using Dimensionals.  I set the leaf behind it.  I used the large Polka Dot folder for the background on the Whisper White piece.  There's not a whole lot to this card.  It was fun and easy to make!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
