A GD spot featuring creatures

Hello my friends,
I am back with another card, this time it was made for challenge #66 at Use it Tuesday. The theme is 'creatures.' and  for their challenges at Use it Tuesday you have to use your hoarded items, well don't we all have plenty of that.
I was invited to be a guest designer this week and this is the card I made for it.


This  image is called 'caterpillar bridge' from DS4J and you can find it  HERE. I think it is such a cutie,
I coloured it with distress ink pads and a touch of Twinkling H2O's, with glossy accents on the eyes.

Paper was from KaiserKraft, matted onto green linen cardstock
.
Sentiment.. computer generated and mated onto an X-cut balloon.

MY hoarded items are:
the green mesh behind the image. I have plenty of that, as I received some with a plant gift being wrapped in it, and being a neon green, I don't use it often. Unfortunately it doesn't show up so well on the photo
Paper flowers. I can start a shop with these, and since I started making my own with punches and die cuts, I also don't use these that often.

I hope you will come and join in this week's challenge, such a fun one and if you head  on over to the challenge blog, you will see the lovely cards by the DT for your inspiration.

I will be back to enter this in some challenges.

This card is so beautiful Ursula - the depth of colour with your greens and purples is a real treat to my eyes. Oh, what a lovely digi and it goes so well with your sentiment. in the busy lives we live today it is all too easy to rush through each day with no regard to the beauty around us. your card is such a beautiful reminder of what we are missing out on. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
