Quit Buggin' Me!!!

Challenge 369 at Shopping Our Stash is "quit buggin'me" ~~ use an insect on your card. What an easy challenge Donna thought up, I guess it's because she didn't want anything too stressful after her holidays, LOL.  I had a few ideas for the challenge and threw a few more odds and ends into my bag going back to the lake this week, my image was a digital image already printed and I have no clue who's it is, I have had it in a stack of images at the lake since May, I knew it would be handy for something.

I coloured the image with spica glitter pens (wasn't taking a chance colouring something this small with copics) the background I smooshed three shades of distress oxide ink on the teflon mat spritzed with water and had fun dabbing the cardstock in it until I liked it, then had to wait for it to dry (note to self~~do the smooshing first) The background die is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 so covered the card I used foam core to cut it out, and it was fun getting to cut all the way through but I managed. it just gives a finished look which you can't really tell in the picture. 

Since insects are the name of the game I used butterflies but better yet I used the mini lady bug brads I bought from the Eyelet outlet Store. Aren't they just the cutest. (there are also bees too)

I didn't finish the inside yet as it's always great to have one or two around that can be used for any occasion that comes up that you need a quick card.

Thanks for visiting today and check out What's buggin' the other girls....head over to the Main Blog.

Barbara, I love the beautiful watercolor background you created, the die is amazing, I also would love to know where I can get my greedy little hands on it.
The butterflies are beautifully colored and those little ladybug brads just complete this amazing card perfectly.
