Hoppy Birthday!

Happy Monday Crafters!  This week on the Creative Critterz Imagination blog we are continuing the frog theme.  It took me a little while to come up with an idea.  My first idea was to make a 'Hoppy Valentines Day' card but decided to do a birthday card instead.  I found the perfect stamp message from the My Pink Stampers Buggy Punnies stamp set.

I created this card using the Cricut Craft Room then printed and cut it out with my Imagine.  I love the combo of CCR and the Imagine.  It works PERFECTLY together!  I use my Imagine more than my E2 now.  This is what the LO of my CCR mat looked like:

Here is the finalized card.  

The frog is from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.  All of the colors and designer papers are from the Bubblegum Stripes Imagine cartridge.  All of the cartridges used and sizes are listed at the bottom.

I used Diamond Stickles all over.  I embossed the white paper w/ the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug Embossing folder and then put a Diamond stickle dot in the center of each dot.   

Here is the inside of the card.  I put a strip of the pink striped paper on the inside and one of the extra birthday hats.

Such a cute card!
I got an Imagine in the fall, but I haven't had time to really play with/explore it yet. I did make my first card with it yesterday ~ I used the frog from "Nursery Tails" to make a birthday card! It came out great! I can't wait to use it more.
I hope you'll have lots more projects using the Imagine to give me some ideas!!
