Sympathy Bugs


October is here and it's time for another challenge at Bizzy Bec's.  This month's theme was chosen by our talented teamie Kelly and she has given us the challenge to create Things With Wings.  I've used Whimsy's Wee Stamps Sympathy Bugs and I think these are the cutest and funniest little guys.  Apologies for the darkness of the picture.  I have an Ott floor lamp and the bulb burned out and I am lost, lost, lost without it and had to make do.  I have one on order and also got a spare so I should be good to go when it arrives.
I don't see this image in the store right now (it was there when I made the card) but if you want it, let Bec know and she'll order it in.  The sentiment is one from Whimsy's Definitions Notables 4 and cut with the Notables 4 die.  I used a new Marianne Creatables die names flowers for the hmmmm... flowers!  The paper is from a 6 x 6 pad of the First Edition Daydream collection.  The button is a Prima wood button and I had to improvise a bit because I didn't have embellies that would go with the purple so I simply covered the button with Tiara Stickles and like how it turned out.  The image was coloured with Copics and for the final touches, I added some Glamour Dust and Viva Pearls.
Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Glimmer & Sparkle
Card Mania - Handmade flowers
Oozak - Die cuts
