Froggy Valentine Card (using Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge)

I just got my first Cricut machine from my Husband. (I blame my Mother-in-law, Trish, for getting me addicted to paper crafts this Christmas!) Anyhow, she came for a visit and we had some fun making cards. I'm in a real pink & red mood so I thought Valentine cards would be fun. I usually don't get into that holiday or really celebrate it, but with the blah winter colors I needed the brightness of these lovely colors. After searching the web for inspiration,  I found this great froggy card on -- Here is a direct link to their Valentine Froggy card.

The inspiration card used the Paisley cartridge, but I instead made this card with the Create A Critter cartridge as it contains a frog I find cuter as well as a lily pad. 

Other notes:
Trish put the words together for the front using her Gypsy; I used her Martha Stewart heart edge/border punch on the front; I used a Valentine stamp on the inside of the card with brown ink.
