Love Bug

Hi, everyone.  Here's a card I made a couple days ago and I'm finally getting a chance to post it. I used this cute little freebie Love Bug from The Doodle Garden.  I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils and added orange Stickles to his heart antennae.

  • Dies:  Spellbinders Labels Twelve, Simon Says Stamp Allegro Corner
  • Punches:  Butterflies (EK Success, Michaels)
  • Ribbon:  May Arts, Dollarama
  • Patterned paper:  Unknown/unmarked from stash
  • Cardstock:  Recollections, Stampin' Up
  • Accents:  Flowers (Dollarama, Michaels), brads, gems (Dollarama), charm (stash)
  • Markers:  For doodling of stitching (Tombow, Staedtler)
