TSOL-FrogStandup2-wm

For my card today, I created a Stand-Ups card using the Sizzix Regal Stand-Ups Card Framelits.

To decorate my card I have used The Stamps of Life's Froggy2love stamp set and the coordinating Froggy Dies.

Here is a closer look at the inside of my card. The lily pad and Happy Birthday Greeting and be seen when the card is displayed in the "stand up" position, the 'Hoppy Good Time' sentiment can only be seen when you open the card.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in the envelope. I decorated the top of the card using the fly stamp which is also included in the stamp set.
