Happy Birthday Frog!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Monday was a very rainy day around my neck of the woods! Thankfully we were not in the hardest hit areas receiving 6" to 10" rain. My thoughts and prayers go out to those folks. 
My Cricut machine was busy working on a birthday card for a young boy. Card measures 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. Patterned papers and the white papers are Colorbok. I was inspired by the current challenge at BBTB2 to play with a frog!
Cricut Cartridges:
Disney Pooh and Friends - Balloon is cut 3" high.
Doodlecharms - Birthday hat is cut .78" wide, 1.07" high. I thought the little frog needed a hat!
Gypsy Wanderings - Happy birthday is used inside and cut 4.25" wide.
Paper Doll Dress Up - Frog is cut 3" high. We have so many green frogs around my house. One night recently, I was actually frog hunting in my kitchen...thought I never would get that green jumping critter outside! This Cricut frog image seemed best suited for my little fella!
Plantin Schoolbook - White oval is cut 3.17" wide, 4.22" high.
Something to Celebrate- Celebrate Banner is cut 3.75" wide.

Swiss Dots - Balloon
Happy Birthday - White oval mat. The white oval mat is on an Action Wobble...just a bit more fun for the birthday boy! I was unable to get a photo of the wobble on the card. Each time I tried to capture the movement, the mat would be in place again.

Just a Note -- When I searched for Frog in the Cricut Explore Image search, the frog on Paper Doll Dress Up did not show up. I noticed the frog later while looking through the PDDU cartridge.
