Makeesha Colour Challenge No 16

Hi All,

WOW! November was hit and miss! I created, I swear. It was just one of those months, In between the computer crashing, hospital visits and general life busy-ness I just haven't had time. I really need to stop making excuses. To make up for it I have a really cute card made for Makeesha's Colour Challenge! How super funky are these colours??

I thought these colours would be rocking as a boys card so I pulled out a set I've hardly used, Bugs and Kisses, and had a play! I really like what I came up with and really want to play some more with it now except we have an ant infestation at the moment and they have taken a liking to my craft desk and well I end up getting eaten by evil bugs everytime I create so I feel my choice in sets is quiet fitting given our ant visitors.

You can't quiet tell but in the background I have stamped little ladybettles on the red cardstock in versamark! Look hard and you will see them. Every photo I took it was very hard to see them.

Stamp Set: Bugs and Kisses, Sanded BG
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Taken With Teal, VersaMark
Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie Marker, Stamp a ma jig, 1 3/8" & 1 1/2" circle punch, scallop edge punch, Sponge daubers

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sorry that the inspiration is real-life bugs in your house (eek!), but the card did turn out very pretty!

Terrific card, Dani! Love the circles and the thin white mat around the red CS.

Good luck with the antsy problem!
