Bugs N Kisses

Happy Taco Tuesday!! Sorry, I've been watching the "Lego Movie" one too many times! Beside we're not having tacos today anyway!! LOL

Well, anywho... I've got an adorable cutie patootie card today... made with the uber cute "Bug N Kisses" set by Pink and Main!!

Love these little cuties dressed up like bugs! They are so sweet wearing their little socks and mary-janes! They always remind me of my little girls or even further back when my mom used to dress me up in mary-janes!! Too sweet!

The paper I used is from Craft Smith. The great thing about this company is that not only do all the papers in this stack match each other but other collection easily coordinate with it too! I have mixed this collection with their Tea Party and Natural Luxury Collections as well... and always ended with GORGEOUS results!! 
The die I used for the ornate square is manufactured by Darice. I was really pleasantly surprised at the quality of their dies. I had purchased this die set online and before then had no idea Darice made dies. The were extremely inexpensive. A set of 6 nested dies cost under $9. How awesome is that?!!

Of course I had to put a little bling on my card somewhere... so I scattered a few pink sequins here and there... these are just your everyday sequins I picked up in my bead/ jewelry making isle at the crafts store not the scrapbook section (if you label something "scrapbook supplies" companies tend to jack the prices up for some reason). There are lots of varieties, different sizes and colors... don't be afraid to venture out of the scrapbooking isles... you'll never know what kind of treasures you'll find!!

And for my super loopy bow... I tied 2- multi looped bows and tied together to make it seem huger than it really is!! 

Overall, I loved how this card turned out and all the yellows and oranges make me "HAPPY"! Have you ever noticed how bright citrus-y colors tend to do that! I have!!

Well Hope you enjoyed my card for today!!
Hope you have a HAPPY, CRAFTY sort of day!!
