Mothra Attacks!

*Yawn* It seems everyone I've run into today is sleepy! Maybe it's the heat. Maybe it's just Thursday. Either way, it's on that I'm going to blame my latest fail. I swear, I think I could do a blog just on those!

I'm sooo excited that Flutter By Wednesday is back! I really did miss them, so I wanted to really do one up for it.. y'know, try something new. I've never done an easel before, much less a round one. I ended up with:
I liked it, and then AJ walked in while I was putting on the butterflies. He looked around my shoulder and said, "Mom, I think you'll need to change the size on your girl. The butterflies are huge. It looks like Mothra's attacking."

Drat. He's right. And then, just to prove he's getting older, he added, "Do ya think State Farm would cover that, or would they tell you they don't do Japanese monster attacks?" Yeah. Remind me to call my agent. Probably does need a separate rider.

So I started to resize my uber-cute digi girl from Bee Crafty when I decided, I'm just going to go with it . I know it's out of proportion, but then again, how many of y'all have ever seen a Mothra card? Definitely something new!

This is for challenges at:
Bee Crafty - 3D (and using at least one digi)
Craftalicious Challenges - Make something cute. (I tried. Maybe Mothra's cute to his mother.)

The rest of the recipe:
DP Green - Little Yellow Bicycle
DP clouds - My Little Shoebox
Flowers - Prima (pink) and the white one's from Making Memories. So are the brads in the center of the pink flowers.
The sentiment is an acrylic stamp from a set I can no longer identify. (I know, bad job.) Cut with a Nestie, stamped in Brilliance.
Butterflies are Verve and are stamped in Adirondack Denim and Watermelon (hot pink - the photo makes it look red.)

Have a wonderful day. Thank you so very much for stopping by; please come again!
