"Ant it cute?"

Doodle Dragons is having another challenge and this one is really terrific!

"Don't Bug Me!"
(Use a bug)


Any kind of insect - as long as it has 6 legs.
Actually, 8 legged arachnids would probably qualify also...
and remember, they must be one of Dustin's images!

With so many cute critters to choose from,
 it's easy to make a fun card for someone you know!

I picked the "Antsandwich" image from the recent April Members Release, and
paper-pieced    every    single    layer    on that burger!

I used a simple variation of the "JOY CARD" fold for this.
My understanding is that is where you have a tri-fold card base, and then apply the image, sentiments, and/or embellishments in a way
that allows them to interlock when you close the card. 
This helps keep your card closed, and really makes for a unique front.


Perhaps you can see the overlap better from a bottom view...


Starting at the bottom, the individual parts of the sandwich were colored with Copics, cut out,
and each one layered to form the sandwich,
Then I applied Glossy Accents on the cheese slices to make them look like real melted cheese.
I used a silver gel pen for the little sword and clear seed beads for the sesame seeds.

"Victory is mine", he says!
