Joan's Garden Challenge NOT!

Hi All!
Soooo I decided to play Joan's Gardens first challenge of the year.... these are the requirements: 
1. Use some kind of animal, bird or whatever
I have cute insects
2. Use a floral background paper
NO floral background paper
3. Do something that takes you out of your comfort zone
I hate to color ( out  of my comfort zone)
4. Use some kind of Die 
Done 
Can you see where I messed up? NO floral paper! Guess I'll make another one tomorrow.... Any hoo my card base is whisper white layered with certainly celery and dp from a mat stack. My focal image is from a really old set called ladybug picnic. All in all it's fun and springy, but does NOT qualify for Joan's challenge :( So I guess I will be back with another card for Joan's challenge! Have a great weekend!
