'Who Ate My Flowers?'

This is it for the day. DH just filled up one of the sinks with tomatoes and has gone back to pick more. Guess I'm gonna be doing something with tomatoes the rest of the evening!! May wait until tomorrow!!! LOL
This card I did for Be Inspired #92 at This week your are to create a project....card, layout, altered item, home decor piece or even a wearable item that includes a garden critter with legs and make sure you use the Cuttlebug in your project! I used Walk in My Garden cartridge for my bee, catapillar, sign, dirt and flower pieces. The grass I cut 3 times from Plantin Schoolbook and then layered it. I used the hide contour on my Gypsy so I could seperate the dirt from the sign and hid the little sign that was with this cut and then cut them to get my colors. I also cut an extra sign to get the post in a different color. I ran my sign through my cuttlebug using the distressed stripes folder to make it have a more of a wood look. Leaned it 'cus the caterpillar has been at work in the garden!! I cut the flowers and then tore them up to make it look like they had been eaten. The catapillar I hid in the grass gluing the body to some of the grass blades and using a 3D glue dot under the head. I cut the original cut and then the layer cut so he could have black legs and antennas. Used tiny pearls that I blackened with a marker for his eyes 'cus I didn't have any black that were small enough. Also put a catapillar on the inside. The bee I cut 4 times. Twice each in black and velumn. I glued the velumn ones together and then trimmed around the body part and then glued them between the 2 black pieces. Then kindof spread the wings out. (Learned this from Jeannie Phillips!) Then I put the stripes on top and used a 3D glue dot to pop him up on my card. The patterned paper I used is from a K and Company stack called 'Wild Saffron'. Come join the fun! It doesn't state a day but I'm thinking you have until Tuesday 7/20 since the challenges start on Wednesdays. Hope ya'll like my card!! :)
If you have a few minutes, check below. I've got 3 other cards that I've done for other challenges. Would 'loooove' for ya'll to take a look at them, too!!
