PSC48 - All Creatures Great and Small

This week at The Perfect Sentiment the challenge is to USE A SENTIMENT FOR THE SEASON OR OCCASION OF YOUR CHOICE. The twist is to incorporate a critter somewhere on your card: teddy bears, mice, frogs, elephants, insects, etc. Our lovely sponsor is Crafty Sentiments Design.

They are offering 3 of their digis as a prize to one lucky, random winner! Today, I used one of their digis for my grandson's birthday card. We love to go exploring together, and recently watched frogs with some lily pads at a nature center.

I used this great sketch, CPS #281, using two blue punched circles topped with orange leaves and flying insect brads in place of the two smaller squares.  After coloring the image with alcohol markers, I cut out each element and glued it on a piece of patterned paper that looked like water and sky. I used dark green waxy flax for some rough stitching that reminded me of things we used to make when I was a Girl Scout at summer camp. The orange and blue patterned papers are from CTMH "Splendor," long retired. The green mat was Basic Grey's "Lemonade."

I hope you'll join our fun challenge with your project featuring creatures great or small!
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge #54 - A Boy Thing (bugs and frogs)
Fairy Tale Challenge #49 - Anything with metal (insect brads)
