Hoppy birthday! We all know someone nuts about frogs. Like your mad-for-frogs girlfriend with the frog refrigerator magnets, plush frog toys, a Kermit design coffee cup, froggie jewelry, a frog umbrella, and bullfrog sticky notes. Her favorite color is green. This is the birthday card for that person!
The cover is wood grain with Happy Birthday written with a flourish, in a script font surrounds by hearts. It has a drawing of a frog wearing a crown and a big smile. Open the card to a fanciful 3-D scene of a green frog prince sitting on a lily pad, holding a vase of flowers for the birthday gal or guy! Ribbit, Ribbit! Hoppy birthday!

Kermit: When you decide what your Big Dream is, you’ll be bursting with enthusiasm and want to share it with everybody. Most everybody will give you one of those ‘OK, that’s nice, now please pass the ketchup’ looks. Some will scoff, suggesting that whatever your Big Dream is, it’s too big for you. And a select few will whisper words of encouragement. My advice is this: Pass the ketchup. Ignore the scoffers. And remember those words of encouragement ‘cause they’re the only ones that matter.
