Hungry Caterpillar


My card was sort of inspired by the Less is More sketch but I've been wanting to use my Caterpillar die from Memory Box. He reminds me of the Pelham puppet I used to have unfortunately I don't have him now cos he would be worth something.
I cut out a couple of Fresh Foliage one of which was cut up by myself to make the ledge for my caterpilllar to stand on. A few Tender Leaves in a different green which in RL doesn't look so odd in fact you can barely tell I used a different green at all.
Finally found my googly eyes in the trolley beside me, my caterpillar wouldn't have worked without them.

Thank you all for the wishes for my new Wet room and Craftroom although some of you think I've packed my stuff away. I moved out just before the cold spell when we came home from our Holiday in Spain in October and spread out around the house but officially I'm in the dining room.

The Memory Box dies are always lovely, and this one is no exception. The caterpillar looks great with the googly eyes and the red and yellow segments, and also the different leaves placed in that very attractive shape. A beautiful eye catching card Debby. x
