Frog Prince Easel Birthday Card

Hello!  This is my first easel card - I had a lot of fun making this card!  The frog prince is cut from the Cricut Once Upon a Princess Cartridge at 2 1/4".  The "hoppy Birthday!" sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp - the stamp has hoppy above birthday so I used a brush tip marker to ink each part and stamp because I needed a more horizontal sentiment.  I used yellow Stickles on the crown to give it a little sparkle and the frog's eyes are little black pearls from Queen & Co.  I made the "Have a Magical Day!" sentiment with the magic wand in Photoshop because I didn't have a stamp that really fit what I wanted for the card.  The pink paper was punched along the top using the Fiskar's Treading Water punch - love that punch!

This is just the front of the card:


This is the card set up in the easel:
