Ya Gotta Love this Grasshopper


Well, I'm just crazy about the grasshopper stamp that Belinda included in her Whispers in the Woods set. This is the second time it has been featured on one of my cards, and I know it won't be the last. I always like her dragonflies and butterflies, but this little grasshopper is just over the top!

I made this card for Card Positioning Systems sketch challenge CPS112 and the Res-Q challenge #5 (put something shiny on your card). I used Blingz paint in Gold Glimmer to highlight the small images in the circles.

Isn't this designer paper pretty? It is from Chatterbox Inc.

Have a good Tuesday. (Tuesday is pizza night at our house, which is always good!)
