Stamps R Us Bugs & Embossing Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! I'm here today with a card for the new Stamps R Us challenge. This week we're being sponsored by Doodle Pantry and the challenge is to use a "bug" and "embossing" on our cards. I used the Happy Buzzer digi image along with a computer generated sentiment. I fussy cut the image out and popped it up on an embossed circle of yellow cardstock. After I dry embossed the yellow with a Cuttlebug ef, I heat embossed it with some clear detail ep. I added some white markings on the circle and lower border with a white sharpie pen. The DP is by Cosmo Cricket from their "togetherness" stack. I added dazzling diamonds to the wings and some black stickles to the antennae. The bottom border was done with a retired SU! slit punch and some black cardstock.
Be sure to check out the rest of the fabulous creations the SRU ladies have made for you this week. You'll have 2 weeks to grab those bug images and embossing folders and play along. As always, there's a nice prize package up for grabs for one randomly drawn winner.
Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your week!

Wow, Carol, What a great job. You just impress me every day. Fuzzy cut? I've never even heard that before. You are a wealth of information. The attention to detail is just terrific, the white dashes, the dazzle diamonds and stickles, everything. The sentiment is great. Wonderful job. Have a great day.

Oh, this is cute! I love bees (just not their stings) and your little sentiment is adorable! I apologize for not commenting lately, but it has been a bit hectic! Next week will be better! I have been lurking, just not commenting! Have a great week!

I don't get along with bees, but this one looks pretty friendly. That border you created at the bottom is sooooooo cool!
