Feliz Cumpleanos Papi

Hello crafty friends,

Today is my father's 79th birthday and I made him a super cute card using the new Frog In The Pond die.

This new die is so easy (and cute) to work with.  I beef'ed (is that even a word?)  him up by die cutting a few extra lily pads (the bottom of the die) and arranging them on the card so that Mr Frog had a bigger area to sit on.  I also die cut a few extra flowers and tucked them around him for more visual interest.

I used the Express Edges Spanish Felicidades die on the right side of the card. I basically die cut the Felicidades right into the card's front panel, which I later covered with wood grain pattern paper for a masculine/nature feel.  

For my photo, I added the following birthday related die cuts to a chalkboard stand I got at Hobby Lobby: the Whispers Big Balloon die, the Spanish Feliz Cumpleanos die and the Spray Paint Font die.

I love how my card turned out and I can't wait to give it to my Dad later today.  Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the first weekend of Spring. Until next time...
