A Muse Challenge #19 - Stick to the Pattern

This month's challenge on the A Muse Lounge is Stick to the Pattern (either use A Muse patterned paper or make your own patterned paper with A Muse stamps). I just happen to have this card tossed in a drawer and thought I'd share it with you - NOT!! I worked hard on this card based on the below sketch for a recent Paper Crafts publication call and was rejected!
I turned the sketch on its side and made the "banners" into hills for my little A Muse Caterpillar to crawl on -
He's got a long journey to his friend's house but he's listening to his iPod (you just can't see it in the picture) and singing along (you just can't hear him in the picture, be thankful - he's kinda out of tune) so the time will fly by -
There are 5 different patterned papers here plus 3 solids! All paper, stamps and ribbon are from A Muse with the exception only being a bit of kraft paper. Be sure and join the fun at the A Muse Lounge - I can't wait to see everyone's creations!!
