Scraps Card #16 Happy Birthday Caterpillar

Back again with another scraps card.  I have officially reached the half way point of this series with 15 more cards to go!  This is also helping put a dent in my pile of scraps....
For this card I kept it simple but cute for a child's birthday.  The card base is cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  The mat (pink) is cut at 5 1/4" x 4" and the patterned paper mat is cut from 5" x 3 3/4".  I have had this patterned paper for awhile.  I can't remember what paper stack it was from but it was all baby girl patterned paper.  I loved it because some papers were flocked while others had glitter.  I had enough from this scrap to make 4 cards!
The caterpillar and frame are both from the Create a Critter cricut cartridge.  The caterpillar is found on page 54 and is cut at 3".  I cut the caterpillar with black cardstock, layer 1 using the same green found on my card base and layer 1 is from a Basic Grey scrap that I had lying around that actually matched the pink in the patterned paper. 
The frame is found on page 60 (cow) and is cut at 3 1/2" from ivory cardstock and again at 3 3/4" using the green.  I cut this using phrase shift.
To finish the little guy off I added the Happy Birthday sentiment using my Studio G lime green ink and added some green bling! Viola!
I entered this in the following challenges:
Bitten By the Bug 2:  Caterpillar Challenge
Charisma Cards:  Happy 3rd birthday Challenge
ABC Challenge:  "H" for Happy Birthday
