Just a quick post to show you my card for the new challenge over at Lexi's Creations - well as long as Mr Blogger doesn't eat it or make it vanish into thin air -LOL!!
Our challenge for you this time is:
A BUG'S LIFE!!
I decided to use this cute bee, which is available in Lexi's shop - Fairy Dust Crafts , along with lots of other cute bug images. Yellow is my favourite colour but I rarely use it on cards so this was a good opportunity to dig through my stash and find some yellow goodies!!
The background paper is a piece of Black Magic co-ordinations paper that has been embossed through the cuttlebug with a Crafts too embossing folder (spots and dots) and then sanded to reveal the yellow core.
The image has been coloured with promarkers, the wings and buzzy trail have had stickles added and the eyes have a nice shiny layer of glossy accents on them!
The felt flower is by Queen and Co and has been in my stash for ages, I just added a black gem to the centre. I couldn't resist adding a charm which is another recent purchase from Ewe2can craft!
Thanks for looking and please check out the rest of the design teams fab creations over at Lexi's this time too!!
