{ Punched Bugs & Bees }

I fell in love with this cute paper the second I saw it on someone's card in the SCS galleries. I was so excited when I happen to come across it at a Joann's, I just had to have it!

I sat down last night to make a card with this adorable paper and it started out by cutting some lady bugs from a Sizzix ladybug die I have. After looking at them with the paper I realized I had to make my own bugs. Perfect timing to being that the SCS challenge of the day was to make something with punches! Everything on the bugs is made from a punch. Even the antennas which I used the slit punch to make and the tails that were made from a snowflake! I ran all the pieces through my Xyron sticker machine first so they would be easier to put together. I couldn't find a cute enough sentiment for this one, so I figure I'll wait until I want to use it and hope I've picked something up that will work well with it. Hope you like!

Supplies:

Paper: SU Whisper White, Yo-Yo Yellow, Gable Green, Ruby Red, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Misc Designer Paper

Embellishments: SU Ribbon
Other: Circle Punch, Hole punches, Rounded Corner Punch, SU Slit Punch, Cuttlebug & Embossing Folder
