365 Day 101, MTTC, Flourishes, CCC & Pile It On

This card was made using a digi stamp from Sweet & Sassy. Isn't the caterpillar cute ?

I printed the full image twice and decoupaged the mushroom heads. I also printed out a larger version of the small mushroom and the caterpillar so I could use them as elements on the card. The images are cloured in using Marvy le Plume pens.

The papers used are from HOTP Creative Cardmakers Pack in Earthtones. The brad originally had white spots but I recoloured those using a permanent marker so they looked the same as the mushroom. I really like how the shapes are quite simple and cartoony as it makes the design quite bold.

I have incorporated 5 challenges into this card, details are as follows:-

365 Cards Day 101 - make a card featuring a vegetable of some sort
My Time To Craft #65 - Sketch from Becky for the layout of the card
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - use designer paper on your card (HOTP)
Creative Card Crew #14 - Use a paper with a repeating geometric pattern
Pile It On - Non Stamped sentiment plus one other challenge

Hi Mandy, please forgive my one-track mind. I saw your questions about sweet potato pie on Rose's blog. Let me tell you it is the best pie you will love - if you like sweet potato's. You can eat it warm with coffee, tea or my favorite-milk! I usually only have it at thanksgiving, but it is a treat when made from scratch in the right kitchen! I hope you get to try it one day. I have been remiss in visiting blogs as much as I used to. It seems I can either: make cards- or visit blogs... :) Hope I didn't take up too much of your comment space. I'm gonna stop rambling, NOW. I'll be back! (BTW)Great cards!
