Tall grasshopper card

I was inspired by several challenge blogs to create this card.  I don't have a sentiment on it yet.  It could be a "Hoppy Birthday" card, or just a general cheery summer card.

The only cart I used was Stretch Your Imagination.  I used the card feature, and opted for the "stretched" card.  I used my Gypsy to stretch it a little more so it would be the size of a tall card to fit in a business envelope.  I also used my Gypsy to create layering, as the card feature on this cart does not allow for layering.
Here is a view of the whole card:

Here is a close-up of the grasshopper.  I gave him googly eyes.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Cricut Cardz Challenge #77--use the card feature from any cart, using any colors
My Creative Time Throwback Thursday episode 195--use any older cart (Stretch your Imagination was one of the very first carts I bought) and the colors green and yellow
Bug Bites Grillin' n Chillin' blog hop party part 2--create a project with one of the hidden critters from the blog hop
