Campin' Critters - Creation #5

For today's card using "Campin' Critters" I decided to make a z-fold, also called s-fold, card.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" when folded.  I started with a 5 1/2"x8 1/2" piece of white cardstock.  I scored it at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4."  I then folded it to create my z-fold (or s-fold) card.  I cut three pieces of brown cardstock and three pieces of the pale teal wood grain cardstock for my mats.  The brown pieces were cut at: 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and 2"x4 1/8" (I cut two of that size).  The wood grain pieces were cut at 5 1/4"x4" and two pieces at 1 7/8"x4."
I used "Campin' Critters" for all the elements, and they can all be found on page 47.  The sign, which is actually the sign feature (and its layers) was cut at 2 3/4."  The frog and smallest butterfly were cut at 2 1/2" from the basic feature.  The two larger butterflies in the corners were cut using the badge feature, its layers at least.  The one in the upper corner is cut at 2" and the larger one was cut at 2 1/2."  All the butterflies were adhered with foam tape.  The frog was covered in glossy accents and his eyes are brown gems.
For the inside I cut another sign at 2 1/2" from brown cardstock, then again at 2 1/4" from white cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped in rich cocoa ink by Tsukineko.  The stamp is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the "Little Critters" set.
I made this card for the following challenges:
Color Throwdown: chocolate chip, sage shadow, white, kiwi kiss, old olive
Scrappy Moms Stamps: gone buggy
{PIN}spirational Challenges: photo inspiration (frog)
