Frog Shaped Birthday Card

I love shaped cards... so today I have another to share. :)
This little froggy is from Create a Critter. I sized the shadow layer to 4 1/4" wide and then added the 2" birthday hat from Celebrations to create this 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" A2 card. I welded the shadow layers on my Gypsy at the top so this little guy can stand on his own too. 

This little cutie has a sweet face, so the only thing I did here was add Glossy Accents to the eyes. I love the green on green polka-dots I cut the frog's body with. It's from last years Christmas Stack from DCWV. I tied a double loop bow for the frog to wear using white satin ribbon.

This is an awful picture, but I hope you can see the green glitter paper I used to cut the hat. I love the DCWV glitter paper, but it sure is difficult to photograph.

Here you can see the shaped card body. I combined a couple sentiment stamps from My Pink Stamper's Punny-licious stamp set for the inside sentiment.
