Frog Birthday Card

Hi, I wanted to share a card I made for my grandma's birthday.  I used the frog from the Mini Monsters cartridge for the front.  I don't have any embossing folders with dots, so I ran the frog through the embossing machine over some jiffy grip fabric to get the raised spots all over him.  After I put the words on, I noticed they were off-center. I stuck some ribbon on the side of the front to make it look more even.  The frog on the front is a shaker.  I love the phrase "I was toad... it is better to get laugh lines than to get worry warts;" which was cut from the girl font on the cupcake cartridge.  The frog inside is from the Paisley cartridge.  He and the "hoppy birthday" both pop-up when you pull the arrow tab.
and the inside:
then when you pull the tab:
