Hoppy Birthday

It is my privilege to be a guest designer today at the Crop Stop blog. The blog has had to change their blog address back to a previous one so now you can find them again at Crop Stop.
I enjoy making extra special cards for my little grands and this was really a fun card to make. 

 The background is made with designer paper for the sky, Darice woodgrain embossing folder for the water, and  die cuts for grass and flowers.  After embossing a blue piece of cardstock with the Darice woodgrain EF, I gently sponged some Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on top of the water swirls. The grass is made with a YNS die and the flowers are cut with Cuttlebug dies. Cantalope Liquid Pearls was used for the flower centers.  The frog (and sentiment) are by Gina K Designs.  After stamping and coloring the frog, I cut him out with a Spellbinder circle then attached it to the card with a  Wobble Spring. I also added some Glossy Accents to give him shine.
Supplies that can be found at Crop Stop:
