Caterpillar card

I made this card for my friends little boy who is about to turn one. His mum loves anything fun and funky so when I saw the pompoms in this months Scrapjunkie Embellishment Kit I just knew what I had to do with them!
If you've not had a look at these new kits then check them out. This months kit is titled Can You Feel It? and is full of yummy textures. There's velvet ribbon, lace, felt, grungeboard and the coolest ever 'leather' alphabet stickers. I've done nothing but stroke since I got my hands on it all!
Anyway, back to my card. I used a sheet of KI memories paper from the Lucky Dip as my background. I then worked out where my bug was going and pierced holes at either side of each pompom. The pompoms from the kit have a little tube running through the middle of them so I threaded them with wire and wired them on to the card rather than trying to glue them on (much easier and neater as I always get in a mess with glue, lol).
To make the bug's legs I cut very thin strips of lime green felt from the kit and threaded this through the hole in each pompom. I finished off my bug with a couple of eyes made from white card and a couple of adhesive gems and a mouth cut from fuchsia felt from the kit.
To give an added bit of interest I made a tab from a bit of American Crafts Ribbon which I attached with three brads.
Finally for the greeting I hand cut a large '1' from blue felt from the kit (handy tip - white journalling pen is great for drawing your design on the felt before cutting out). I then added the word 'today' using the Color Rubz Rub Ons in yellow/orange. I love these so much, you get loads of each letter with two different colours in each set and they come packaged in their own cute little tin. To make me like them even better, they're on offer at the moment in loads of different colours!
