That is the theme for this week's CAS challenge on SCS. I haven't been able to make a card for this challenge in ages, so I am super excited to play along this week! For this card, I started by staring at my A muse stamps. I saw the strawberry stamp, but decided it might be too lonely on the page. I spied the caterpillar stamp, but he didn't quite fit the way I wanted him to on the strawberry. I decided he might like to be stamped along with a delicious leaf, however...and the sentiment was a no-brainer.

Leaf frond was rock and rolled in two ink colours for dimension and the caterpillar was paper pieced onto the stem. I love when an idea works out on paper the way it is in your head...


Stamps: A muse (caterpillar, delicious day, leaf frond II)
Ink: palette hybrid noir, SU (certainly celery & garden green)
Paper: GinaK pure luxury white, A muse orange gingham
Accessories: ribbon (May Arts), pop dots, corner chomper

This is beautiful, Alanna! I really like how you inked the leaf and the paper pieced caterpillar is super cute. The sentiment is perfect, too!

What a clever and fun design! The leaf is beautiful ... love the dimension you achieved with the rock and roll inking; and your caterpiller is so sweet-looking as he prepares for his delicious lunch!
