PP163 & The Kraft Journal - Song/Book

Hello Everyone,

I want to share a card for two challenges, the first being The Paper Players.  It's all about creating a CAS project "For the Kids"

The other challenge is The Kraft Journal. We were asked to use a song/book theme to create a project.  I chose the classic book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle.  I remember reading it to my girls when they were little.
My Card:

I started out with Crumb Cake as the case base, followed with layers of Real Red and Whisper White.  The caterpillar was quick and easy to create.  I cut out 8 green circles using the 3/4 circle punch, and 1 red circle using the 1 inch punch.  Using the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge, I made the caterpillar's antennas.  The Crop-A-Dile came in handy to punch out the small white circles for the eyes.  Using a thin green maker, I hand drew the dots for the eyes, nose and the smile.  The ruffled layers on the bottom were created with the MFT Simply Scallop Die.  First, I adhered the red layer, then decided to add some yellow color as well.  Under the caterpillar, I adhered a strip of patterned paper from SU! Print Poetry DSP.  I divided the top and bottom with 1/8 Real Red Taffeta Ribbon.  I stamped the sentiment from IBS Wishes Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added a few green rhinestones to finish off the card.
