Bug Hugs


Happy Friday!!  Just a funny little card today as I am playing along with a challenge this am at Splitcoast.  The challenge was to use 2 layers of cardstock the same colour.  I went with white on white for a crisp and clean look.  I partially embossed my background by running my cardstock through my Cuttlebug, removing it then running it through again leaving a partially open area with no embossing so I could add my little guy and the sentiment.  I paper pieced him and added glossy accents to his nose for shine.  The front panel is added using pop dots.

Also adding my card to these challenges:
The Male Room- SCIENCE FICTION
CASology- #89 JOKE
Less in More- ROUND and ROUND
Little Red Wagon- MASCULINE

Thanks so much for popping in.  

Supplies:  stamps- The Alley Way, Stampotique/ Cuttlebug/ Memento ink/ Glossy Accents/ twine

  2. Cute card, Karen! (I can say that now.....when I first saw it I thought his nose was his mouth and I was wondering why he was yelling at me. :-) )

  5. Cute card! Love the emb bkgrd and your little plaid bug. :) Glad I read your take on the challenge because I got it wrong. I thought we were supposed to stamp ink on ink not cardstock on cardstock. Ooops! I'll have to redo my card. Drats. Maybe tonight. Have a good weekend, Karen! :)
