Caterpillar/WIMG

Happy Monday, dear ones. Today I host Bitten By The Bug2 weekly challenge. I selected the darling little caterpillar from Walk In My Garden cartridge. I hope that you will join in on our challenge and if you don't have WIMG, there are many cute little caterpillars on other cartridges. Just remember to mention that you have joined in the challenge at BBTB2 (so your visitors will know where to look) and make sure you have created something new for the challenge.

My card style is a Gate Fold Card, one of my favorites. I've mounted each panel with a black cardstock and then a green pattern paper which has been embossed. On the right side I present the smiley little caterpillar who hovers over the left panel. His leg slips in under one of the flower petals and that allows the card to be closed. The flowers are hearts connected by a yellow flower center and all have been embossed. I added a yellow button on the flower center, and Caterpillar has a sweet red jewel for her nose. The sentiment outside and inside are from Cutting Cafe. I am on hiatus from The Cafe but I love Regina's printables so much, they always make their way into most cards I create. The outside sentiment is from The Cafe's printable here: The inside sentiment that says "I hope you feel better soon" is from The Cafe's printable here.



TFL, hope you visited me from BBTB2 because the designers always have something delightful to share with you to leave you with some inspiration.
