Ant's a girl!

Hello and welcome fall!!! I love this time of year here, it's still warm enough to enjoy being outside and the colors of the trees, when they change, are absolutely gorgeous!
As it's Thursday it's New release day over at Julie Spiri's Etsy store. Since we still have lots of sunshine, I'm actually still in summer mode so here's a summery card well the ants are all over in summer!!!!!
Meet Little Ant - she isn't like the tiny creepy crawlies at all in fact she is so sweet!!! I just love the little flowers on her eyelashes!
I have colored her with Spectrum Noir Markers and focused her gaze on a little ant who is directing his trail of workers around the card!!! These are from a set of Lawn Fawn stamps. The sentiment, is from the same collection and has been stamped in green ink.
I matted the image into green card and a white card blank as is my signature style I have kept the card CAS
Julia's images can be found in her Etsy Store but you also have a chance to win them over at her challenge blog.
Check out my Teamie's inspirations using this and many other of Julia's adorable images over on the blog or her Facebook Showcase group.
