Isn't this a beautiful sentiment !! Makes you look at Caterpillars in a whole diffent way...I  am playing with Tuesday Morning Sketches color challenge . They want you to use Chocolate chip, apricot and vanilla.. Now I dont know if you can see it or not but I used a new technique called double embossing. I have embossed the around the nestabilitie..So it is smooth in the middle and then embossed a second time so you could see the shape of the nestabilitie. On top of that I used Waltzing mouse nesti friendly stamps to accent it. It sounds confusing but if you want to try it check out this video over at cuttlebug spot..I used my big shot and it worked just the same. I am also putting this on Flutter by Wednesday Challenge, this week is a open week but you must have a farie, angel or butterfly on your card..Thanks for joining me today!!Monique
