Don't bug me !!

Now it's not time for a new challenge yet at paper crafting journey but I came across this digi I had (another one which I purchased and didn't use - naughty me) and thought just how perfect it would be for our challenge - So I thought I'd add it to maybe give you a little more inspiration and hopefully encourage you to get out your stash and play along with us.

I used a 12 x 12 paper that has sat in my paper storage for over a year - but isn't it just perfect ? And the little ladybirds that are escaping from the corner are from a love elsie clear stamp set.

I coloured the image with my promarkers and applied a thick layer of glossy accents to the jar, when it was dry I rolled the image around my rolling pin and left overnight so it sort of has the shape of a jar too !

I left the rest pretty clean and simple with a double twine bow and a couple of brads.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Clear it out challenge - Colour it with markers (promarkers)
Lexi's creations - Spots/stripes (my bugs have both !)
My partner in crafting crime - Use twine, jute or string (twine)
Stamps r us - Going digital (digi stamp)
One stitch at a time - Anything goes
Sparkles Forum challenge - Recipe - 2 papers, 1 ribbon or BOW, 2 embellishments (brads)
For fun challenges - Get well card

Thanks for visiting me today
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
