Caterpillar Love - My Pink Stamper Design Team Call Challenge

Hello everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your week so far! It's been a super busy week for me both in school and over here in the blogging world! If you haven't heard already, I was selected as a Celebrate the Occasion design team member! This challenge blog has amazing challenges for all the major occasions - and cards are definitely needed!! The design team has so much talent, so you will not be disappointed!!

Remember, there's a giveaway going on here that you don't want to miss!

Now this past Monday was my third year anniversary! My boyfriend was so sweet - he knew that I had a challenging week ahead of me with a business presentation and an accounting report due, so he suggested that we celebrate our anniversary next week. He really knows how to read my mind, and he did relieve a bit of the stress that I was feeling! It's been three years that we've been together, but it feels like just yesterday that we met. I've known him for years now, and I definitely can't imagine the rest of the coming years without him! I love you! So enough with the sap! Here's the card that I made for my boyfriend for our anniversary, and for the My Pink Stamper Design Team Call Challenge.

For the challenge, you must include the colours:
--> Orange
--> Turquoise
--> Green
--> Brown
--> Optional: Any colour of your choice

With those colours in mind, I used my favourite cartridge Create a Critter to create this card. I like to call my boyfriend a caterpillar - and we have a song to go along with it! Haha:

The caterpillars just came out darling, didn't they?! :) I added eyelashes for the girl! This is a 5x5 square card base. I used My Pink Stamper's More Punnylicious stamp set to stamp 'love.' The full sentiment reads 'puppy love' so I taped over the 'puppy,' inked it up, then removed the tape to get just what I needed! I created the swing out of scraps, doodled on the seat to make it look like wood, added brads and twine, and voila!

Here's a close-up of the caterpillars:

Trail of Treasures:
  • Caterpillars and tree cut from Create a Critter cartridge

  • Sentiment from My Pink Stamper More Punnylicious
  • White gelly roll pen
  • Heart corner punch
  • Black fine tip pen
  • Specialty twine
  • Mini brads
  • Ribbon
  • Floss
If you'd like to participate in this Design Team Call Challenge, you can do so here. Remember, the deadline is this Wednesday!! Good luck!

Until next time's treasures,
