Celebrate The Occasion - Kids' Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Today’s project for Celebrate The Occasion challenge blog was to make a project with the theme of Kids' Birthday.  Make sure you participate.  You have until next Sunday to enter the challenge and win some awesome blog candy!  Click here to go to the CTO blog and enter your project!

For my project, I decided to use the caterpillar from Stretch Your Imagination cart.  I cut her at 2.5".  I also cut the shadow in white, then blinged it up with my favorite, Diamond Stickles. LOL I used black stickles for the nose and black diamond bling for the eyes.  

I chose a colorful patterned paper that I had in my stash.  It is SEI ally's wonderland - caterpillar cushion (I just found out the name....I guess it was the perfect choice for my project).  It is floral on one side and striped on the other.  I then added some pink floral brads in each corner.

I used PTI kraft cardstock for the cardbase.  I cut the cardbase from Birthday Bash cart at 6".  I then layered it with purple cardstock.  I did some stitching on the card with the Janome Sew Mini.  This was my first time actually stitching on my card, and as you can see, I was a little crooked in some places.  LOL  Hopefully, I will get better with practice.

Anyway, hope you enjoy!  Please leave me a comment, as I love to hear what you guys think! 
Also, don't forget that Celebrate The Occasion challenge blog is having a Valentine Blog Hop/DT call on February 12th, which also means blog candy for the hop!!  :)   Go to Celebrate The Occasion to join the hop and enter for the DT call.   

Happy Crafting!  Make sure you enter this week's CTO challenge for a Kid's Birthday Theme project and a chance to win some blog candy.
