The Darlin' BUGS of May

Late this week due to naughty blogger with my card for this week's brilliant Daring Cardmakers dare - chosen by the super talented Lynda, it is;

The Darlin' BUGS of May
I'd like to see some BUGS eg ladybirds, bees, spiders, caterpillars, butterflies, dragonflies - it would be lovely to see them taking centre stage on your card or be used as a lovely embellishment but I won't accept them if they're just printed onto your backing papers as that wouldn't be a challenge at all!

and here is my card complete with a buggy font, butterfly, ant and bees.

I used;
Sassafras Lass papers from Sarah's Cards
A journaling card as a backing paper from CraftsUPrint
A Bug's Life font from Dafont
Ribbon Girl pins
Abakhan material
Quickutz ant
Basic Grey bees
Cuttlebug Butterfly
Hand stitching and Inking.

My Daring Cardmaker teamies have created a magnificent display of mini beasts - You can check out all of their cards here

Have a fab weekend!

Clever to have used the bug theme for a get well soon card. A lovely whimsical card.
