Going "Buggy!"


Here's the Sweet Stop SSS211 sketch challenge for this week and there's a spin on the challenge that's "going buggy."


I've had this SNSS Bitty Bug digi image printed for months, and decided this sketch challenge was the right opportunity to actually use it to make a card. I colored it with Copics, adding white gel pen accents and some wire antennae when I fussy-cut it and popped it up on foam tape. I added a piece of white tulle underneath him, and used some Echo Park dsp scraps for the banners. I used 2 different Cuttlebug embossing folders with dots for the background and square panel. The sentiment was done with stickers.

Since I used snippets of dsp for this card, I'm also entering it into the Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground #73.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful Monday!
