Bugs, Bees, Ants, and Lady bugs!

Happy Friday everyone! 

I am soooo looking forward to the weekend! I have a new Cricut Lite cart and I cannot wait to play with it! :)

Anyway.... on the the next challenge! Today's card was made for this weeks challenge over at the Paper Playtime blog. Janis's challenge was to make a Card, Layout, 3-D Project or any other Paper Craft Project with the theme BUGS, BEES, ANTS, OR LADYBUGS. This is what I came up with.

For the base of my card I used craft card stock, it measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I used the  DCWV The Guy Stack and solid Bazzil card stock. The sweet little inch worm was cut from the Cricut Lite "B is for Boy" cart, he was cut at 3 1/2". The plaid piece of paper was cut at 4 1/4" x 1 1/2" and punched down one edge with the Friskars, Treading Water boarder punch. Once that was punched I wrapped it twice with twine and tied a knot. Then I added foam tape and adhered it to the front of the card. The sentiment half circle was cut from the Straight From the Nest cart, at 1 3/4". I use the Lots of Pun  stamp set for the stamped sentiment... and of course all the edges were inked with coordinating inks! :)

The papers on the inside of the card measure  3 3/4" x 5", 3 1/4" x 4 1/2", and 2 3/4" x 4".  

I just LOVE how this card turned out! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 

Happy Scrap'n!
