Unfrogettable Birthday

My nephew, Ethan, turns 2 this weekend....he loves cars and trucks, but I didn't have the time to round up any stamps like that, so frogs it is! The sentiment is from one of my fave SU sets, "Unfrogettable", plus its coordinating "Lily Pad" wheel, and the little frogs are from "Very Punny". I haven't used Polyshrink shrinkable plastic in a while, so I stamped three frogs, cut them out with paper snips, and shrunk them down with my heat tool, placed one on the tag and one in each corner for embellishments. The water was sponged with Tempting Turquoise, using a scratch paper mask.

I have used the following challenges in the making of this card:
The Fun On Friday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts is to use numbers on your project;
Just Scraps Challenge#18: Fussy Cutting;
Our Creative Corner: ABC's and 123's;
Etsy Inspired Challenge: I LOVED the colors in this ring from the very fun Glamasaurus store;
Stamp Something Challenge: Something Cute;
Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast: Once again, I LOVE turquoise and olive, so I chose this bag.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed holiday weekend!!
