Little Miss Muffet: Stages Caterpillar

Hi All,

We have a new release at Little Miss Muffet today - lots of new images and sales too!  New Hatters, new Pollycraft images and a fundraiser for the Monarch Butterfly!

Barbara's daughter was reading the book Monarch Magic! by Lynn Rosenblatt and in the back of the book there were fundraiser ideas for the Monarch Butterfly.  Her daughter's initial idea was to have a bake sale, but since it was 109F outside, Barbara suggested they draw some images to sell instead.  So that is what they did.

There are several images, Barbara's daughter drew the stages of the butterfly and Barbara added Festive Butterfly to join in the fun.  

It comes as a package deal, for each sold during August, $2 will be donated to The Monarch Butterfly Fund!  

I used "Stages Caterpillar" for my card today.  Unfortunately, I did not look up what a monarch caterpillar looked like before coloring.  The monarch caterpillar is striped like this...
Mine must be a really young larva.

I had gotten some burlap a few weeks ago and thought this would be a perfect card to use it on.  Lots of texture to this card.  

The cardstock is PTI Ripe Avocado and Chocolate.  I used PTI "Vineyard" impression plate and patterned cardstock "Turning a New Leaf".
