Summer fun

It turns out I'm still in the mood for summery, bbq cards!  For this one, I used the same background paper as my last BBQ card.  I was thinking about picnics and the first thing that came to mind is ants stealing my food.  However, it turns out there aren't a lot of Cricut cartridges with ants on them, and of the ones that exist, I have none!  It was time to get a little creative.  For these little guys, I cut the caterpillars from Stretch Your Imagination at 1 inch and then trimmed off half of their bodies.  Don't they look like they're having fun stealing someone's watermelon?  That's how I picked the sentiment from Stampendous' "Everything Happy."  I added a little bling on the tag on either side of the sentiment.

The watermelon and the tag are also from Stretch Your Imagination.

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut- BBQ Time
Die Cuttin Divas- Summer Fruits and Veggies
Pin It
