Crafty Calendar Challenges DT Card

Good morning all, it's the first Friday of the month and that means it's time for another challenge from Crafty Calendar Challenges.  This month we have the challenge of 'The Great Outdoors' with the added option of 'Insects'.

I really enjoyed making this card as it is a little different. The image I chose is one of the popular Mo Manning's digital images and I think this one was one of her first freebie's, it also came with some accessories which I chose not to use. I also tried something which I have seen around blogland but not tried before myself. I cut the lettering on my circut from a cereal box and then again with my patterned paper, I inked the edges of the cereal cuts before sticking my patterned papers to them. This has given them depth and made them more rigid.

6" Square Card - Paper Mill Shop
