Caterpillar Celebrations!

How hard was it to choose an image to create with for the Designed2Delight progressive challenge this week! My wish list is even longer now.... I ended up choosing a fun little fellow ... Celebrating Caterpillar....

Ingredients: Cardstock - Portacraft; Stardust Glitter Pens, Glaze Pens - Sakura; Black Signo; Chalks - Pebbles Inc.

I can't believe that I have created a card without rhinestones or pearls or any other associated bling!  I rarely make flat cards.  Today is a flat one, embellishment free, even, but that's what screamed out to me with this image... clean and crisp, and uncluttered.  I coloured with glitter pens, accented with glaze pen, and backgrounded with chalks, just for a hint of colour. Faux stitches around the outer finished the card.   
I should do more large framed images more often, because I love their simplicity!

Also entered in these challenges:
Celebrate The Occasion #24 - Kid's Birthday (8/8)
Kaboodle Doodles - #78 In the Garden (8/8)
Party Time Tuesdays - #27 Birthdays (9/8)
Lil' Red Wagon - #92 Put a Critter on it! (10/8)
Kelley Kids - #1 Anything Goes (10/8)
