Sweet Sunday Sketch

Good Morning Stampers! Thanks for stopping by!

Today's card I made for a friend who has been feeling a little low lately. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and the retiring hostess set, Darling Dots.

I started out with a piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 9 1/4" x 8" and folded it in half so it would fit in a business size envelope. I added a strip of Bella Rose DSP and stamped my ladybugs and beetles (we call the green ones junebugs but I know those are actually brown and yucky!)using my SU Markers. I punched them out with my 1 1/4" Square Punch and layered them on Real Red punched with the Square Scallop Punch. I stamped the top part of the card with White Craft ink and tied some Michael's ribbon around the card and adhered the bow with a Mini Glue Dot. The sentiment comes from the retired Best Yet hostess set. The final touch is the Dazzling Diamonds glitter I added with my 2-Way Glue Pen. Can't have "junebugs" without a little shimmer!
So sorry my photo is terrible. Seems like they are getting worse instead of better!

Hope you have a great day!

  2. Oh my gosh, this is so cute and will cheer your friend up! I love it and when I expanded the photo, the glitter just pops! Adorable!
