Goin' Buggy ...

Hello Everyone!
Today's a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters and Sister Terri has
chosen 'BUGS' for today's theme!  Yep, she's ask that we use some sort of 'bug, insect, creepy crawly thingie' on our cards/projects.  I can't say I've ever used this theme/thought as the basis for a card before!  LOL   ...   what fun!

Well, here's what came together for me today:

I actually turned to my 'scrapbooking supplies' for inspiration today.
I knew I should have SOMETHING in there that pertained to
the outdoors ... camping ... that sort of thing and I
hit the jack pot!
Dragonfly stickers ... Bumble Bee stickers
Ladybug stickers

The floral cornered panel is also a sticker so I backed it with
SU Groovy Guava card stock and that's where it all began!

Of course then I went 'In Search Of' the design paper I wanted for the background
and this Graphic45 was perfect (scrap pieces).
Next came the sentiment ... WELL THAT DIDN'T GO WELL!!!
Not realizing the sticker panel was a 'shiny' type of paper,
I stamped the sentiment then proceeded to SMEAR it into a mess!
SO, moving on to Plan B ...
Stamped my sentiment onto a scrap piece of the SU Groovy Guava paper
and die cut it into a circle to 'hide my mess'!
That works!  LOL!
