Doing the happy dance!

This is another card that I made for Monday's CAS challenge: use dimensionals / pop-up dots on your clean & simple cards. (Although it's one layer without the popped up parts, it's not as open as I wanted it.

Has this ever happened to you? My card was done. I liked it. And then I smudged it with ink. Ugh! So now you see 2 spiders hanging from ribbon! Why not make them any color I want? LOL! I think they match my snail rather well!

I used the paper tole technique by using dimensionals to pop up portions of the flower images more than once.

Here's a fun comment I received on StampTV hat summed up my idea when making this card:

"This is so stinkin' cute! I love the scene you created. And that sentiment is just perfect for all the fun things in there. I'm imagining the spiders swinging and the layered flowers look like they're doing the shimmy. :-) Great job!" - Nina
