SPRING FLING SATURDAY CHALLENGE AT CATCH THE BUG BLOG -- APRIL 11, 2020

Hello all, and welcome!  I hope your Saturday is going well; here in PA today, it is nice and sunny, but chilly and a bit windy.  Tomorrow, we're supposed to get heavy rain, so I guess it's good that no one is coming over for Easter dinner.

Despite these uncertain times we are going through, Mother Nature is still moving right along, and Spring is here!  Over on the Catch the Bug blog, we're all about having a Spring Fling for this week's challenge.  Here is my card:


For my card, I chose the adorable Bugaboo Bee 02 image.  I just love these little characters!  The Bugaboo Bee and the ladybug seem to be getting along just fine.  :)  I wanted a more pastel look for my alcohol marker coloring, so I started things off by coloring the ladybug in pink and gray, instead of red and black.  I used the Doodlebug Hello Sunshine patterned paper as a reference for my color choices.  When it came to picking which papers to use, there is a nice yellow houndstooth that I used as my background, and then this cute floral piece that I cut into 3 equal pieces, and then a Sizzix edge die for some interest.  I popped the image up on dollar store foam tape.  The sentiment is from Recolletions, and was cut from a small polka dot patterned paper in the same paper pad, and twice from a scrap of the Recollections 110 lb. card stock I use for my card bases.  Oh yeah, and the clouds were created using my Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds die stencil, Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, and the light blue Taylored Expressions blending brush.
