Caught a Bug Card

I made this card for Going Buggy's Party.  She is celebrating a ton of stuff, including 500,000 visits.  That is pretty amazing.  I love Enfy's work.  She does a lot of coloring with ProMarkers and she makes some incredible cards, calendars and other cool stuff.  So, when she created a challenge (which is going to be judged which makes me just too nervous to think) I wanted to do something fun and different.

The challenge was to use a bug on the project.  Well, I decided to use a few bugs.  The centipede is from Walk In My Garden.  The other two bugs are from Boys Will Be Boys.  The jar is from Doodlecharms.  I made the jar out of acetate (can you tell I'm on an acetate kick, yesterday it was acetate stencils, today it is an acetate feature.  I cut the jar 5 times.  Once for the shadow, once for the back, once for the lid, once for the top layer and once for the cut out of the bottom.  I thought it gave it a little depth to have the bottom cut out and inked.  Then, I pop dotted the jar away from the shadow. 

I tried to get a picture of the layers but it is tough to see.
I had to be very strategic in where I placed my pop dots so they wouldn't show through the jar.

These are the bugs in the jar. 

The sentiment was computer generated.  It says, "I heard you caught a bug".  Everyone in my family has a low grade cold so we are all just a little miserable but not bad enough to stop and do nothing.  It is no fun at all.

The pattern paper is DCWV from the Songbird stack.

So, what do you think?
